Amazon.com Inc. must cease and desist from retaliating against employees for workplace activism, a New York federal judge ordered Friday. 

The ruling requires Amazon to distribute the order to employees at a Staten Island warehouse and to read it to them at a meeting, but US district judge Diane Gujarati denied a request for an injunction to reinstate a fired activist made by the National Labor Relations Board.
