The Global Unions’ Committee on Workers Capital and the SOC Investment Group cordially invite you:
Amazon AGM Investor Briefing: Workers’ Rights & Opportunities at Amazon
April 27| 10:30 am – 11:45 am EDT
Is Amazon fulfilling its promise to be the “Earth’s Best Employer” and the “Earth’s Safest Place to Work”? How Amazon, one of the largest global employers, answers these challenges will be critical for the company’s long-term success.
Leading up to this year’s annual meeting on May 25, speakers with diverse and unique expertise, including Amazon workers, a labor relations expert, and a shareholder advocate will explore these questions and address key items on Amazon’s proxy ballot. The panelists will share their knowledge and first-hand experience with Amazon’s operations and corporate governance to give investors useful tools to assess Amazon’s progress towards its workplace goals. Webinar attendees will receive actionable information for the evaluation of risks and opportunities at Amazon and for engagement with Amazon’s board and management.
