Amazon Worker Forces Changes as Labor Board Settles Claim

Updated on

Amazon.com Inc. agreed to change some of the rules for workers at the Web retailer’s warehouses in the U.S. so that employees can communicate about pay and working conditions without fear of retaliation.

In a settlement reached with the National Labor Relations Board yesterday, the Seattle-based company also agreed to rescind a verbal warning given to a staff member at a Phoenix warehouse who voiced concerns about security in the parking lot following thefts from vehicles. A hearing had been scheduled between the parties yesterday. Bloomberg News obtained a copy of the settlement.
