Workers at Amazon in Bessemer, Alabama are getting a new union election. The NLRB yesterday formally ordered a re-run, upholding charges by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) that Amazon had acted blatantly illegally during the vote earlier this year. “Today’s decision confirms what we were saying all along," said RWDSU president Stuart Appelbaum, "that Amazon’s intimidation and interference prevented workers from having a fair say in whether they wanted a union in their workplace." The NLRB cited Amazon’s “flagrant disregard” for an agency procedure to make union elections free and fair, saying the company “essentially highjacked the process and gave a strong impression that it controlled the process.” Workers rejected the union by a 2-1 margin. A date for the re-run has not yet been set. Read more here.
