Amazon Threatened Workers Over Union Vote, Labor Officials Find

  • Company accused of punishing worker for seeking Juneteenth day
  • NLRB to issue complaint on charges unless settlement reached

U.S. labor board prosecutors plan to accuse Amazon.com Inc. of threatening staff that if they unionized it could propose paying them minimum wage and of punishing an employee for seeking a paid Juneteenth holiday.

Unless the company settles, the National Labor Relations Board will issue a complaint, agency spokesperson Kayla Blado said Thursday. An Amazon spokesperson didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
