Amazon withdraws job adverts for union 'spies'
Amazon has withdrawn two job adverts for "Intelligence analysts" which said the posts would involve reporting on union activity among workers. Amazon has made it clear that it does not want its warehouse workers to join unions, saying that it prefers to talk directly to them about any concerns they may have. Some workers claim they were not informed until July, when a court case about workers rights during the pandemic began. Vice has reported that internal reports suggest Amazon is also spying on closed Facebook groups to identify potential issues among workers. Amazon fired two workers in April after they publicly denounced the company's treatment of warehouse workers during the pandemic.
