Posted On: Oct 06, 2022
Oct. 6, 2022 | HEALTH & SAFETY | Amazon suspended at least 50 workers on Tuesday who were involved in a work stoppage the previous evening at the company’s only unionized warehouse in the United States, union leaders said. Roughly 100 warehouse associates on the night shift at the facility in Staten Island, N.Y., refused to work for several hours on Monday evening, shortly after a fire broke out in a trash compactor machine used on cardboard, according to Amazon Labor Union officials. Labor leaders said the warehouse smelled of smoke and that it was hard to breathe. One worker went to the hospital, they said. Washington Post
