Nearly 2000 Amazon employees are preparing to strike to oppose resumption of work and layoffs
2000 Amazon employees to strike against work resumption and layoffs
About 2,000 employees are preparing to participate in a strike in front of the Amazon Spheres building in the center of the Seattle headquarters to protest the company’s demands for layoffs and return to work. The strike will be held in front of the Amazon Spheres building on May 31 and is being initiated by Amazon climate justice employees and Amazon remote advocacy community leaders.
The strike is due to Amazon’s mandatory return-to-office policy on May 1, requiring employees to return to the office at least three days a week. In addition, Amazon has fired 27,000 employees in two layoff announcements, causing widespread dissatisfaction and protests.
“Employees need to have a say in decisions that affect our lives, such as returning to work and how our work is used to accelerate the climate crisis,” said Amazon climate justice employees and Amazon remote advocacy community leaders.
However, an Amazon spokesperson told GeekWire that they have been listening and will continue to do so. “We’re happy to see more people back in the office in the first month. There is more energy, collaboration, and connection happening, and we hear that from many employees and businesses around the office,” the company spokesperson said.

The spokesperson added, “We understand that it takes time to adjust to more time in the office, and many teams in the company are working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible.”
However, thousands of enterprise and tech employees are not excited about returning to work and have joined an internal Slack channel to protest the policy. “This is about Amazon going in the wrong direction, losing trust. We want the best for Amazon. Long-term thinking and employee voices are an important part of day one culture, and it’s that culture that has made Amazon such a successful company, and we’re trying to reignite it,” Amazon climate justice employees and Amazon remote advocacy community leaders said in a statement.
