Bezos acknowledges Amazon needs to do ‘a better job’ for employees after union vote

April 16, 2021

Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos acknowledged the e-commerce giant needs to “do a better job for our employees,” his first comments since the company’s lopsided victory over a unionization effort at an Alabama warehouse last week. In his letter to shareholders, Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, wrote that some news reports of employee complaints about a brutal warehouse workplace during the union campaign were inaccurate. He cited internal surveys of warehouse staff that found 94 percent would recommend Amazon to a friend as a place to work.
