Seattle Amazon workers plan walkout over return to office, layoffs

Foot traffic is fairly heavy in front of the Amazon spheres. Weeks after Amazon's return-to-office mandate took effect, two groups of employees are organizing a walkout planned for May 31.

Some Amazon employees in Seattle plan to walk off the job to show their frustration with recent layoffs, return-to-office mandates and a lack of action to address the company's impact on climate change, organizers said.

A group of workers is urging their colleagues to walk out May 31, a week after Amazon's annual shareholder meeting and a month after the company's return-to-office mandate took effect. The Washington Post first reported on the plans Monday.
