(Reuters) – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday he had ordered the city’s human rights commissioner to investigate the dismissal of a worker at an Amazon.com warehouse who had participated in a walkout.

On Monday, 15 workers at its warehouse in Staten Island, New York, walked off the job following reports of coronavirus cases among the facility’s staff.
