Amazon dispatcher forced driver to continue delivery during tornadoes or face termination
Kentucky national guard chief of staff on tornado recovery efforts
Kentucky national guard chief of staff Col. Joseph Henry Gardner on the aftermath of the devastating tornadoes in Kentucky.
An Amazon driver faced the threat of losing her job if she didn’t continue to deliver packages during the deadly tornadoes that struck several states last week.
Screenshots shared with Bloomberg detailed an exchange between the driver and dispatcher: The driver alerted dispatch that tornado alarms sounded and she asked to turn back "for my own personal safety."
Even with the tornadoes touching down nearby, the dispatch said that management would take her decision to return with her packages undelivered as "refusing your route," which would end in termination.
