Athena coalition statement about Amazon firing JFK8 walkout leader

Amazon will give a lot of reasons for why Chris Smalls was fired today... [A]t midday today, Chris stood up and called out Amazon for failing to protect our safety and our health. Hours later, he was fired... Amazon workers, neighbors, small businesses, and communities will not be intimidated... Amazon is failing its public responsibilities... Rather than firing workers and pretending the problems don't exist, we call on Amazon to do what we've been asking: issue a comprehensive plan of how you will protect public health, at-risk workers and communities, and provide full payment to those whose work is disrupted.
