In spring 2021, the CUNY Adjunct Project’s External & Labor Relations Co-Organizer, Jamila Hammami, focused on solidarity work with the Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama during the #BAmazonUnion Drive.
On March 4th, 2021, Jamila Hammami, Adjunct Project External & Labor Relations Co-Organizer, supported #BAmazon Union Drive via mobilizing CUNY graduate workers and contingent faculty and speaking at Amazon’s union-busting law firm, Morgan & Lewis. Union Busting Is Disgusting!

On May 14th, 2021, CUNY Adjunct Project’s External & Labor Relations Co-Organizer, Jamila Hammami, attended the Tempest’s National Amazon Solidarity event.
On Sunday, March 14, 2021, Tempest hosted a successful meeting entitled “National Amazon Solidarity” to build support both for the RWDSU organizing campaign in Bessemer, Alabama, and for the broader movement to strengthen workers’ power and organization against one of the most powerful corporations in the world. We present below a video of the event, and excerpts of the varied and powerful statements of support (full statements can be heard in the video). We look forward to building on this solidarity effort, both in Bessemer and beyond, win or lose this battle.
The Adjunct Project’s co-organizer’s solidarity statement was published on the Tempest website as an excerpt from the National Solidarity Statement below:
Every worker deserves a union!
Workers of the world must unite to support this struggle of the Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama. This is a historic moment! The predominantly Black worker- led BAmazon Union Drive is fighting for a union against one of the largest transnational corporations in the world! The #BAmazon workers are changing the labor movement. Every worker deserves a union. The Adjunct Project stands in solidarity with the #BAmazon workers and their struggle for a union, and their fight against union- busting Amazon, Jeff Bezos, and Morgan & Lewis Law Firm.
