Amazon workers walked out of the main distribution centre in Minnesota on Monday, protesting for improved working conditions during the e-commerce titan’s major “Prime” shopping event.

Amazon workers picketed outside the facility, briefly delaying a few trucks and waving signs with messages along the lines of “We’re human, not robots.”

“We know Prime Day is a big day for Amazon, so we hope this strike will help executives understand how serious we are about wanting real change that will uplift the workers in Amazon’s warehouses,” striker Safiyo Mohamed said in a release.

“We create a lot of wealth for Amazon, but they aren’t treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve.”

Organizers did not disclose the number of strikers, who said employees picketed for about an hour in intense heat before cutting the protest short due to the onset of heavy rain.
