Amazon offered current employees a small cash bonus, with managers blaming a "limited budget."
Amazon management responded by doubling overtime pay for all warehouse employees during the peak holiday season, the note said.
For the BFI4 warehouse specifically, Amazon made another small concession, providing $150 cash bonuses to workers with five or more years of tenure and a $50 cash bonus to the rest.
The BFI4 site's leadership told employees they raised concerns with Amazon corporate leaders, and were allowed to increase overtime pay.
"We realize this small cash bonus is not as lucrative as the signing bonus, but that is all our site budget could afford," the managers said, according to the screenshot obtained by Insider.
