The victory at JFK8 in April was the first time in American labour history that workers have successfully unionized in an anti-union company.

According to the information Amazon has fired two warehouse workers who helped organize a union at JFK8 from Staten Island which is the Amazon’s largest warehouse in the New York City. The victory at JFK8 in April was the first time in American labour history that workers have successfully unionized in an anti-union company.

As per as the report, the tech giant has so far refused to recognize the union and has asked the National Labour Relations Board to release the election results. While it’s unclear whether the recent terminations are retaliatory, they mark the first time since the Amazon Labour Union won the union election on April 1 that Amazon has terminated organizers in Staten Island.

According to an email, on May 3, Amazon Human Resources informed Matt Cusick, Comus lead for the Amazon labour union and Amazon warehouse worker, that he had been terminated for “voluntary resignation due to leaving a job.” Amazon notified another warehouse employee, Tristan Duchin, an ALU organizer whose photo has featured prominently in major media outlets in recent weeks.

In a meeting on May 7, it was said that Tristan Dutchin had been terminated for falling behind on productivity targets. Later the report also said, the screenshots that the Dutch sent it confirmed, they had been locked out of the Amazon Atoz app, which handles payroll and scheduling. Not only this, Amazon fired six senior managers on May 5 who oversaw Amazon’s anti-union campaign at JFK8.
