Alabama Amazon Workers Reject Union, But Organizers Say the Fight Isn’t Over
Posted On: Apr 09, 2021
Apr. 9, 2021 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Workers at the Amazon plant in Bessemer, Alabama have voted against unionizing, dealing a major defeat to labor organizers hoping for a galvanizing victory in the South. The final vote tally: 1,798 against unionizing versus 738 in favor of union. About 500 challenged ballots were not counted, according to the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, with most challenges coming from Amazon. Those disputed ballots are not enough to change the results. The union says it will object to the results with the National Labor Relations Board and said Amazon intimidated and coerced workers into voting no. “Our system is broken and Amazon took full advantage of that”… WBHM
