Amazon held meeting with delivery companies on how to prevent Toronto workers from unionizing

Amazon staff held a closed-door meeting with Toronto delivery companies on how to identify and prevent union-organizing attempts.

At the meeting, a presentation marked confidential was made to 15 owners and senior leaders of delivery companies that Amazon contracts. Only one firm, which was unionized at the time, did not get an invite. It has since gone bankrupt.   

The presentation was made public as part of an ongoing dispute between Amazon and the United Food and Commercial Workers Canada (UFCW), Local 175, the latter of which is seeking a ruling from the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) that Amazon unfairly blocked its attempts to organize about 770 Toronto drivers.
