Get back to the office! GM’s threat to workers

Published

on

General Motors is the latest company to tell its workers to return to the office. The automaker is asking employees to come in three days a week.

The pandemic has forced many companies to let their workers work from home, but now some are saying it’s time to go back.

GM is just the latest company to announce a return to the office. IBM, Facebook and Goldman Sachs have all made similar announcements in recent weeks.

GM says the move will allow for more collaboration and brainstorming. The company has been offering voluntary return-to-office programs since June, but this is the first time it’s mandatory.

Returning to work comes with some risks, but GM says it has taken steps to make its offices safe.

The company has installed plexiglass partitions, increased cleaning and requires employees to wear masks.

Tech safety

Touchless entry and temperature checks are also part of the plan.

The pandemic has forced many companies to reevaluate their policies on working from home.

For GM, the decision was made to bring employees back into the office three days a week.

The company feels that this will allow for more collaboration and brainstorming.

If you are an employee of GM, be aware that starting soon, you will be required to come into the office for at least three days out of the week.

Remember to take precautions such as wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing in order to keep yourself and your coworkers safe.

Amazon employees walk out to protest office policies

Staff at warehousing giant Amazon have walked off the job to protest the company’s return-to-office program

Over 1,900 Amazon employees pledged to protest globally over proposed changes to the company’s climate policy, layoffs and a return-to-office mandate.

The activist group behind the rally is known as Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ), who are seeking a greater voice for employees.

“Our goal is to change Amazon’s cost/benefit analysis on making harmful, unilateral decisions that are having an outsized impact on people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people,” organisers said.

Over 100 people gathered at the heart of Amazon’s Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. The company said it had not witnessed any other demonstrations.

AECJ said the walkout comes after Amazon made moves “in the wrong direction”.

The company recently has recently overturned a desire to make all Amazon shipments net zero for carbon emissions by 2030.

The company maintains a pledge on climate change.

Amazon spokesperson Brad Glasser told Reuters the company is pursuing a strategy to cut carbon emissions.

“For companies like ours who consume a lot of power, and have very substantial transportation, packaging, and physical building assets, it’ll take time to accomplish.”

AECJ protesters also sought support for the 27,000 staff, who had lost their jobs in recent months —around 9 per cent of Amazon’s global workforce.

The company has also mandated a return-to-office program.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”
