Facing the epidemic Covid-19, is Amazon employee safety assured? At a site near Orléans (Loiret), tension rose a notch after the detection of a case. According to Richard Vivès, union delegate, the employees work the ball in the stomach: “The climate is anxiety-provoking, heavy, we feel fear everywhere.” Their concern, safety distances of a minimum of one meter not always respected according to them, while they are not wearing masks.
In a video filmed during a shift, an Amazon executive unwittingly acknowledged difficulties: “Are we doing it perfectly? The answer is no.” The CGT seized occupational medicine. On one site, she would recommend a drastic measure, “to stop the business activity”. For its part, the company claims, with supporting photos, to have taken extreme measures to “ensuring the safety of people”.
