Amazon workers in Maryland say they were fired for union organizing

June 22, 2022

An independent labor group is alleging that Amazon illegally fired two employees at a Prince George’s County facility for “standing up for the rights” of their co-workers, the group said in charges filed with the National Labor Relations Board last week. Amazonians United — a rank-and-file organization that has also organized at warehouses in Sacramento, Chicago and New York — said that the workers at the DMD9 delivery station in Upper Marlboro were terminated for their roles in collecting signatures for two petitions and encouraging others to participate in a walkout in March.
