USA: Amazon accused of 'aggressive anti-union tactics' after training video is leaked; Incl. Amazon's response & Whole Worker rejoinder
In July 2019, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Amazon to respond to allegations of anti-union tactics. Amazon responded that workers must not be penalized or subjected to harassment or intimidation for the non-violent exercise of their right to join or refrain from joining such legal organizations. Its full response is included below.
Business & Human Rights Resource Centre received a rejoinder to Amazon's response from Whole Worker, a grassroots movement of Whole Foods team members. Whole Worker said Amazon failed to acknowledge or address the training video in its response and said by invoking the possibility of violence Amazon was engaging in another union-busting tactic. The full rejoinder is also included below.
