union.amazon.com ? Customer service reps at Amazon.com are trying to form a union. Amazon says "We don't have unions at Amazon and don't really need them".

I'm sure management would say that, they always do. No company needs a union, the workers do.

"Every employee is an owner at Amazon, since they own stock and can exercise their right to raise workplace issues or concerns at any time."

Small shareholders need unions too!

They probably don't have unions in India either.

Owillis, were you trying to offend the customer support people, indians, or both? (-:

unfortunately, ICANN voted down the dot-union TLD, so we're not likely to see amazon.union any time soon.
