Amazon deletes job listings detailing effort to monitor ‘labor organizing threats’

Amazon now claims the listings were inaccurate, but it is not saying

Curated via Twitter from The Verge’s twitter account….

The role was described in one now-deleted listing as “vital to ensuring that Amazon operations leadership have access to actionable intelligence that informs decision making on a global scale. ” Part of that effort, as the listing explained, involves “engaging and informing [executive leadership] on sensitive topics … including labor organizing threats against the company.

The company now claims the listings were not accurate representations of the roles, according to CNBC. “The job post was not an accurate description of the role — it was made in error and has since been corrected,” an Amazon representative said in a statement, although Amazon does not appear to be offering any information as to how the listings were inaccurate.

Amazon has claimed it does not retaliate against employees and fired Smalls and others, including employees who criticized Amazon’s climate record and warehouse worker conditions during COVID-19, for violations of its corporate policies.

Amazon has deleted two job listings posted to its corporate employment website detailing “intelligence analyst” roles that involved, among other duties, monitoring “labor organizing threats” within the company.

The company has also fired workers, like New York City warehouse worker and walkout organizer Chris Smalls, after those workers publicly criticized the company or, like in Smalls’ case, helped organize labor actions.
