This 2 January 2020 United States TV video says about itself:
AMAZON THREATENED WORKERS WHO SPEAK OUT ON CLIMATE CHANGE The group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said its leaders had been threatened and questioned by the company’s human resources department about comments they made in the press last year. The company’s response is a form of “targeting” meant to keep employees from speaking out further, the group said. [HuffPost]
From the BBC today:
A group of Amazon employees has said the company has threatened to fire some of them for speaking out on environmental issues.
Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said the workers were told they were in violation of company policies.
It comes after employees joined calls for the e-commerce giant to do more to tackle climate change.
In a Twitter post, the group said some employees had been contacted by Amazon‘s legal and human resources teams and questioned about public comments they had made.
The statement went on to say: “Some workers then received follow-up emails threatening termination if they continue to speak about Amazon‘s business.”
… Amazon Employees for Climate Justice is a group of the company’s workers “who believe it’s our responsibility to ensure our business models don’t contribute to the climate crisis“.
The group has called on Amazon to achieve zero emissions by 2030, limit its work with fossil fuel companies, and stop funding for politicians and lobbyists who deny the existence of climate change.
That proposal was rejected by shareholders. … More than 1,000 workers left their desks to join the Global Climate Strike, as well as protesting against Amazon’s environmental policies.
