Tlaib and Dingell Rip Amazon for 'Unsafe Conditions' at Metro Detroit Warehouse

Michigan Congresswomen Debbie Dingell and Rashida Tlaib ripped Amazon on Monday for unsafe conditions at its Romulus distribution center, and for calling the police on them while waiting outside the facility last Friday to inspect it.

“For months, we have stood with workers at Amazon as they demanded that one of the world’s richest corporations provide a safe working environment," the Democrats said in a statement Monday evening. "On Friday, we accepted Amazon’s open invitation and visited DTW1 in Romulus to see for ourselves. We were made to wait more than an hour and a half outside the facility as we watched personnel inside scrambling to clean areas visible to us.

"While we waited—and for no apparent reason—Amazon called the police on their Congresswomen. Despite their claims to the contrary, there was no misunderstanding. They knew exactly who we were."

Amazon spokeswoman Maria Boschetti did not respond to the allegations about conditions, but offered this statement about the police being called:

“There was an unfortunate misunderstanding when one of our night shift security guards was not expecting external visitors or filming onsite and was not aware of the identity of those making the request—the situation was resolved and we toured the Congresswomen through the site.”
