In May 2020, Ethical Consumer viewed an article in the Guardian dated April 2020, which was an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos written by a former worker in an Amazon warehouse in the US.

The author recounted how he had organised a collective walkout due to a perceived lack of response from the company to the workers’ concerns about their safety during the Covid-19 outbreak, and was subsequently fired from his position.

The company lost half a mark under the Workers’ Rights category as a result of the criticism.
