NLRB Challenged Over Firing of Amazon Worker

NTD News

Amazon fired Gerald Bryson from one of its warehouses in April 2020 after he protested working conditions during the pandemic. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in March of this year filed a court petition, requiring Amazon to reinstate Bryson. The board argues that Amazon violated his rights under the National Labor Relations Act. In a letter to the NLRB, Republican senators, Richard Burr and Mike Braun, and two House members, argue that Amazon was justified in firing Bryson. They point out that the board ignored how Bryson was hurling obscenities at a female coworker through a loudspeaker at the protest. In Thursday's letter, the senators and U.S. Reps. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina and Rick Allen of Georgia said Amazon was required to take action against Bryson under federal anti-discrimination laws, which prohibit employers from tolerating a hostile work environment.
