Amazon workers walk out of Cicero facility

CICERO, Ill. (WLS) -- Some Amazon workers walked out of a facility in Cicero Wednesday morning

The group of about 30 said they are demanding better pay and working conditions.

A spokesman for the workers said the company has threatened them with firing if they walked out. An Amazon spokesperson denied that claim and said the employees were reassured that anyone who took part would not face retaliation.

The Amazon spokesperson said, "We respect the rights of employees to protest and recognize their legal right to do so. We are proud to offer employees leading pay, competitive benefits, and the opportunity to grow with our company."
