Amazon ordered to hold new union election at the Alabama facility

A federal labor relations official has ordered another union election at an Amazon facility in Bessemer, Ala., After finding out the technology giant was interfering and violating workers’ labor rights during a high-profile, but unsuccessful, union push earlier this year.

Atlanta-based Region 10 Director Lisa Henderson issued the decision and directions for another election Monday afternoon, according to the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which is working to organize workers at the Alabama Filling Center. NLRB spokeswoman Kayla Blado also confirmed that Region 10 has ordered new elections in the dispute.

“Today’s decision confirms what we kept saying – that Amazon’s intimidation and interference prevented workers from having a fair say in whether they wanted a union in their workplace, and as the regional director has indicated, it is both unacceptable and illegal, ‚ÄĚStuart Appelbaum, union president, said in a statement. “Amazon workers deserve to have a voice at work that can only come from a union.”
