Amazon: How to remove labor unions at work? Well, hire a spy and bust them.
Union-Busters have been secretly hired by Amazon to stop the rampant protest activity in the company. The protester’s advocacy elaborates on an anti-labor reeducation and states that Bezos’ wealth is making the company greedy. And they also pointed out the company’s poor labor practices.
So how does Amazon do it? Well, the first step is through job posting and job description.
They have discreetly posted two open positions on the company’s job board. These are the Senior Intelligence Analyst and Intelligence Analyst, which contained some ambiguous job descriptions of the roles and responsibilities.
Their Roles in Amazon
According to the job descriptions posted:
Analysts must be capable of engaging and informing L7+ ER Principals (attorney stakeholders) on sensitive topics that are highly confidential. This includes labor organizing threats against the company, establish and track funding and activities connected to corporate campaigns (internal and external) against Amazon, and provides sophisticated analysis on these topics.
Analysts must be capable of creating and deploying sophisticated search strings tailored to various business interests and used to monitor for future risk. Notably, engaging business leaders (L6+) directly are core to this support and may cover organized labor, activist groups, and hostile political leaders.
They expect Analysts or (Union-Busters) to have close knowledge gaps by initiating and maintaining engagement with topical subject matter experts on topics of importance to Amazon, including hate groups, policy initiatives, geopolitical issues, terrorism, law enforcement, and organized labor.
Twitter user Joe Slowik first spotted these listings. He then stated that the company is currently calling for someone to break the unions that are building up inside the company. However, Amazon has not commented yet on whether (or how many) current analysts have similar responsibilities.
Leah Seay, a spokesperson for Amazon, said in response to a request for comment about these specific job listings, “The job post was not an accurate description of the role – it was made in error and has since been corrected.”
Seay has not stated what about the description was inaccurate, nor have these pages been “corrected” so much as “deleted entirely.”
If you happen to search amazon’s job listings, it will show that the company has already employed hundreds of “intelligence analysts.” However, as you go over with its job description, you’ll notice that it has similar titles, though, point towards responsibilities more in lines with the title, like crunching data to look for business inefficiencies or identifying fraud and cyber-crime risks which is far different from these Union-Busters. They will base these positions in Phoenix, Arizona.
