STOP New Schedule Change for Amazon ONT-5

This petition had 111 supporters

Hello everyone, 

My name is Mario Flores and I am a three year associate working at Amazon ONT-5 located in San Bernardino, CA. There has been a unexpected shake up within our Amazon warehouse. Human Resources of Amazon ONT 5 sent out an email concerning about a change of our current work schedule hours to times that some of us Amazon associates will not be able to handle. This decision was made by a chosen few associates instead of being announced throughout the whole shifts within the Amazon ONT-5 warehouse. Our current work schedule is listed as followed: 

Morning Shift - 5:00 am to 9:00 am, Day Shift - 10:30 am to 2:30 pm, Twilight Shift - 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm, Night Shift - 9:00 pm to 1:00 am, Wrap Down - 12:00 am to 4:00 am 

As Amazon associates, we all agreed to work for these selected shifts for the past two years. There are some of us associates who have other schedules that are outside of work which regards school, childcare, and secondary employment. Human Resources offered us a schedule preference that we, Amazon associates, hand picked ourselves that can work accordingly to outside schedules. The problem that's making us associates feel pressured is the new schedules that will be effective on Sunday, September 17th of 2017. The new work schedule is listed as followed: 

Morning Shift - 7:00 am to 11:00 am, Day Shift - 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm, Twilight Shift - 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Night Shift with Wrap Down - 11:30 pm to 3:30 am 

With this new schedule for every Amazon associate, it will conflict some of our outside schedules that include school, childcare, and secondary jobs. What's also included with these new schedules, which are also included with our current schedule, is the possibility of a one hour flex up. All this does is add another hour to a shift which makes an associate stay longer, leave work at a later time, and make it hard for them to sleep with less time.

What needs to happen is to keep our current work schedule and STOP the changes to having the new schedule. If the new schedule can't be stopped, current Amazon associates will have no option but to quit their shift in order to maintain their school, childcare, and/or secondary jobs. Please help and sign this petition to secure our current work schedule through Amazon ONT-5. 

Thank you
