Amazon Employees Plan a Walkout Due to a ‘Lack of Trust’ in Leadership

Amazon Employees Plan a Walkout Due to a ‘Lack of Trust’ in Leadership

Amazon employees have had enough.


On Wednesday, nearly 2,000 employees at Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle planned a walkout.


Employees were reportedly lacking trust in the leadership at the company as well as fighting back against the push to return to the office at least three days a week. According to CNN, in an email from organizers, the two main demands from the walkout were revealed, “asking the e-commerce giant to put climate impact at the forefront of its decision making, and to provide greater flexibility for how and where employees work.”


An Amazon corporate worker based in Los Angeles revealed to CNN that morale at the company was “at an all-time low.” Earlier this year, Amazon announced that multiple rounds of job cuts would be taking place resulting in the loss of some 27,000 employees.


These layoffs mixed with Amazon’s push to get workers back into the office have taken a toll on current employees. However, Brad Glasser, an Amazon spokesperson, said that during the first month of having employees back in the office “there’s more energy, collaboration, and connections happening, and we’ve heard this from lots of employees and the businesses that surround our office.”
