Amazon Labor Union Schodack, NY Warehouse Update with Heather Goodall

Since April 2022, the workers at Amazon’s Schodack, NY warehouse have been organizing to become a local of the Amazon Labor Union. Organizing Campaign Manager Heather Goodall has been providing weekly updates to Hudson Mohawk Magazine’s Cathy Silber. In this July 28, 2022 segment, Heather describes Amazon’s latest intimidation tactics, anti-union propaganda in required employee meetings, the Amazon response to the Schodack Warehouse memorial service for a New Jersey employee who suffered a fatal heart attack while loading a truck after being sent back to work following complaints of chest pain on the job, and more.
