About the event
Join the Labour and Employment Law Association (LELA) and the Black Law Students’ Association (BLSA) for a conversation with Amazon Union Organizer, Christian Smalls. Chris led walkouts in protest of safety concerns at Amazon warehouses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, he has founded a workers' rights group and led labour movements at other Amazon warehouses. We will also discuss the intersection of race and socio-economic status with precarious work.
