A very well-sourced article, it brings to light a lot of facts related to Amazon strategy to keep their employees under surveillance. This piece offers a great context about previous tactics of the company to avoid unions and presents some more organized and incredibly intelligent ways Amazon tries to control what happens in the company. This memo shows how sophisticated and powerful it can be... and I'm really shocked after reading this article. I have no idea how Amazon's employees could get rid of this rotten culture.

This is a very good investigative look into Amazon's anti-union practices and the leak of their SPOC program which may or may not be an intelligence-gathering program to combat unionization amongst its workforce. There are a lot of excellent sources quoted in the piece, but also a lot of anonymous sources. I usually tend to prefer named sources, but I have a lot of trust in Recode and specifically Jason Del Rey's reporting.
