Union sues Amazon delivery firms over driver rights

Amazon said its delivery providers were "Contractually obligated" to pay drivers minimum wage. The union said that drivers for the three firms were paid per parcel delivered and faced issues that fully employed workers did not, despite performing very similar duties.
