#BoycottAmazon is trending on Twitter among other social media platforms, with the e-commerce giant Amazon facing massive backlash from users and the public because of its recent controversies. The company has prevented another union of workers from forming in Alabama, leading to a massive protest of the e-commerce platform.
The largest e-commerce platform in the world, Amazon, is known for its massive hold against employees to unionize within the company as it holds part-time or contractual work for most of its factory workers. The company has faced a lot of issues in the past and has led to the boycott and protests against the company for unjust conditions.
A worker's union is an organization that looks into the best interests of an employee, particularly those who are not protected by the company policies and secured by tenure that grants insurances and the like. Amazon has prevented unions from forming for the past years, and one of its most notable is 2020's initial strike against the company.

Amazon Unionization Stopped Every Time
Over 3,000 Amazon workers have already petitioned for a union within the company, and that is only based on the most recent event of unionization that has happened in Alabama. However, the company has been long-struck with a history of petitions from its factory workers for an organization that would represent its best interests.

It is known that Amazon has shut down most of the move in unionizing within the company, and it has continued to fuel the rage of unending protests and boycotts against Amazon and its services. The #BoycottAmazon that is trending now is not the first, and certainly not the last that would occur due to the rift between its workers and management.
