Workers seeking to organize into a union after a crushing defeat at the Amazon.com distribution center last year have been revived by the movement’s revival, despite major obstacles.
The referendum on distribution center staff in Bessemer ends this month with a vote on unionizing the unit. The U.S. National Labor Relations Board has concluded that the previous election had an undue impact on Amazon.
Workers trying to form the first union in the Amazon US warehouse are facing a tough task, depending on the difference between the two retail companies in the original poll.
However, since the last referendum, the labor movement has gained strength, driven by epidemic concerns and strikes.
The administration of US President Joe Biden has promised to implement policies that facilitate the formation of workers. After union approval 1965, last year’s Gallup poll showed.
Amazon employee Braxton Wright, 39, said while expecting success for the unit’s union demand, even a short loss in Bessemer would help others see if union organization is possible. By simply voting, you give more people the courage to say, “Hey, we want to form a union,” Wright said.
Led by former Amazon employee Christian Smalls, workers at two Amazon distribution centers in New York were given permission to hold a union referendum.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
According to Amazon, the unions are threatening to change the way the online retailer manages its operations, and labor costs are expected to increase by more than $ 4 billion in additional costs related to the labor shortage over the past quarter.
Distrust of the unions was even more common among workers, triggered by Amazon, which warned that union groups could force strikes and pay cuts, something the RWDSU is controversial about.
