Amazon employees plan to strike over company's lack of action on climate

Hundreds of Amazon employees say they will go on strike later this month to call on the company to change its climate policies—the first planned strike in Amazon’s 25-year history.

More than 1,000 workers, many based at the company’s headquarters in Seattle, have signed an internal petition from the group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice pledging to walk out on September 20 as part of the Global Climate Strike.

The employee group made headlines earlier this year after thousands of employees signed an open letter criticizing the company’s lack of action on climate while it courted the oil and gas industry.
