Amazon could face delivery delays next year if pilots go on strike.

Cargo airline Air Transport International (ATI) flies half of all US aircraft carrying cargo for Amazon. Its pilots have voted to authorize a strike, citing low pay and high turnover.

“We’re watching our carrier disintegrate,” Mike Sterling, chair of the ATI pilots’ union, tells Wired.

If negotiations between the union and ATI continue to stall, a strike could start next year. That could complicate deliveries for Amazon, which has its own track record of resisting workers’ efforts to unionize.
