An interesting development from the Amazon union vote.
Back in April, Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama voted against Unionization.
The vote was 1,798-738 with 76 ballots being voided.
This seemed to put an end to union talks at least for now.
However, now we have this.
According to testimony, Amazon had access to mailboxes that were put in for the union vote.
Testimony that Amazon.com Inc. had access to a mailbox installed for workers to vote in a recent union election could prompt the National Labor Relations Board to overturn the results, according to the agency’s former chair.
During an NLRB hearing on Friday, employee Kevin Jackson said Amazon security guards used keys to open the mailbox, which was located near the entrance of the facility in Bessemer, Alabama.
The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which lost the election last month, has accused Amazon of having the mailbox installed so it could spy on workers. Even just the impression of election surveillance by an employer can influence the vote’s outcome, so the hearing is focusing largely on what workers witnessed during the election.
This could be grounds to overturn the results of the election.
Amazon denies that they did anything wrong and claimed that “the facts will become clear when we have a chance to present them next week.”
We will continue to update this as more information on the Union vote comes out/
