Amazon May Have Interfered in Alabama Workers' Warehouse Vote, Reports Say

In April, at least 5,800 Amazon distribution centre employees voted on merging with the Union of Retail, Wholesale and Department Stores, but results showed that employees rejected unionisation.

An official from the National Labor Relations Board advised Amazon workers to vote again on whether to form the company's first unionised warehouse, according to the New York Times.

According to reports, Amazon could have illegally interfered in previous elections in April which led to the warehouse's failure to introduce collective bargaining.

“Throughout the N.L.R.B. hearing, we heard compelling evidence how Amazon tried to illegally interfere with and intimidate workers as they sought to exercise their right to form a union,” Stuart Appelbaum, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union president, said as quoted by the New York Times. “We support the hearing officer’s recommendation that the N.L.R.B. set aside the election results and direct a new election.”
