According to organizers, employees will either call in sick or walk off their job during lunch breaks. A press release was published on Wednesday. To support the demonstrations, some workers will be joined by rank-and-file members of unions outside their stores and warehouses.
Amazon refused to comment on organizers’ compilation of sick workers. Rachael Lighty, spokesperson for Amazon, stated that while we value people’s freedom to speak out, we object to the irresponsible actions by labor groups spreading misinformation and making false claims regarding Amazon during this unprecedented economic and health crisis. She said, “We have taken extreme measures to address this pandemic.”
