Workers worried after being told about 3 positive COVID-19 cases at Amazon's Shakopee facility
April 28, 2020
At least three employees at Amazon's fulfillment center in Shakopee have now tested positive for COVID-19, the company has told employees in recent days, sparking increased concerns among some workers who have been clamoring for more protections and safety measures.
After the company disclosed the second coronavirus case, at least 25 Amazon workers in Shakopee walked off their shift to demand an extension of unlimited unpaid time off for workers who don't feel safe working or need to stay home during the pandemic. In addition, they protested what they said were unjust firings of multiple workers.
