2019年5月亚马逊年度股东大会外的抗议者

在亚马逊上周的年度股东大会上,该公司的股东压倒性地击落了超过了旨在的十几个提案,Probonents表示,使公司成为一个更透明和负责任的公司公民。

这些建议主要关注种族和股票issues, as well as antitrust and responsible use of Amazon’s technology, such as its facial recognition technology and Ring doorbell camera.

该公司的年度股东大会通常在西雅图举行,但是hosted online this year因为大流行。投票结果是张贴周五在亚马逊公司网站上。

亚马逊反对所有措施,称该公司已经做得足以报告和监督这些问题,并努力将更多的妇女和人民带入其顶级行政等级。

股东决议不具有约束力;然而,这些措施通常是为了围绕某些公司政策达成共识,并迫使董事会采取行动。

在大多数情况下,股东们以大约2比1或更多的票数否决了提案。

The exception was a proposal that would have required an independent board chairman who is not — nor has ever been — the company’s CEO. Shareholders torpedoed that proposition by a margin of roughly six to one, signaling they want Bezos to continue to have a role in the company.

Notably, a proposal to audit the company’s impact on civil rights, equity and diversity issues was more narrowly defeated. The measure called on Amazon to commission an independent report examining, among other issues, allegations that surveillance footage from Amazon’s Ring doorbell cameras and related Neighbors app have been used to “disproportionately tag people of color as suspicious.”

民权审计的支持者还指出,有人指责亚马逊网络服务公司的面部识别软件被过度用于对有色人种、移民和民权组织进行监控。

此外,该动议的支持者说,有报道称,亚马逊一直在不一致地执行政策,禁止在其零售平台上销售“助长仇恨”的产品

在招聘和提拔女性和有色人种高管方面,其他要求提高亚马逊做法透明度的提议以更大幅度落空。

A proposal to put an hourly logistics worker on Amazon’s board also failed, as did a proposal to audit the environmental impacts of the retail giant’s packaging, particularly as it relates to plastics accumulating in the world’s oceans.

The proposal to put an hourly worker on the board was presented during the meeting on behalf of Oxfam America by Jennifer Bates, an Amazon hourly worker who was加入工会的努力失败的一部分该公司位于阿拉巴马州贝塞默的履行中心。

This is not the first time similar measures have been proposed and failed at Amazon’s shareholders meeting.

This year, however, Amazon is facing a string of lawsuits, five of which were filed last month, brought by corporate employees alleging gender and racial discrimination.

此外,在明尼阿波利斯警察囚禁的穆斯·弗洛伊德谋杀已在公众的思想中提出了种族股权前端和中心的问题。亚马逊的高管在社交媒体和博客帖子中发言,以支持黑人生活。
