Tech & Science Amazon illegally dismissed two ecological activist employees
The Amazon union vote is over. Here’s what happens now.
Whether or not the union’s challenge in Bessemer fails, Amazon will face labor battles elsewhere.The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) announced on Friday that it planned to file unfair labor practice charges against Amazon over allegations of employee intimidation and manipulation. The union also requested a hearing before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to go over its objections.
two frames that pushed to reduce the carbon footprint of the company were returned last year. An abusive separation, has decided the federal agency that ensures the rights of workers.
The National Committee on American Labor Relations estimates that Emily Cunningham and Maren Costa were abusively dismissed by Amazon in 2020. They were part of thegathering more than 8,700 members to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the electronic commerce giant.
Amazon believes that they have violated the internal rules by publicly denigrating the company. "We support the right of each employee to criticize the working conditions of his employer, but this is not to grant total immunity against our internal rules, which are all legal," said Jaci Anderson, a spokesman of Amazon, according to the New York Times.
Amazon has won a historic warehouse union election. But the battle is not over.
The union says it will challenge the results over alleged illegal behavior.“Our system is broken, Amazon took full advantage of that, and we will be calling on the labor board to hold Amazon accountable for its illegal and egregious behavior during the campaign,” RWDSU president Stuart Appelbaum said in a statement to Recode on Thursday evening.
Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris supports their employer thanked them last April, while they were going to tackle working conditions in warehouses. Several Democratian senators including Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris had supported them. Tim Bray, Vice President of Amazon Web Services, had resigned as a sign of protest. Certainly, Amazon's lowest wages are twice the federal minimum in the United States. But some management practices are subject to increased monitoring since Washington. The company has hired a lot to meet the increase in online orders since the beginning of the health crisis and the employees would be under pressure. The results of the election concerning the creation of a union are still not known. The National Labor Relations Committee continues to strip the ballots. Source:
