A vice president at Amazon Web Services said Monday he resigned after five years on the job, accusing Amazon of "firing whistleblowers" concerned about worker safety amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Tim Bray said his last day at Amazon was Friday and that he raised concerns "through the proper channels and by the book" about Amazon's termination of Emily Cunningham and Maren Costa, who are members of the activist group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice. Bray lives and works in Canada.
"That done, remaining an Amazon VP would have meant, in effect, signing off on actions I despised," Bray wrote in a blog post. "So I resigned."
Amazon declined to comment to FOX Business.
Bray, whose LinkedIn says his title is Senior Principal Engineer, VP/Distinguished Engineer, said his resignation was motivated by the firing of employees including Chris Smalls, an Amazon warehouse worker. An Amazon spokesperson previously told FOX Business that Smalls was terminated for repeatedly "violating social distancing guidelines and putting the safety of others at risk."
