Amazon denounces the vote on the creation of the first union of a warehouse of the technological giant in the US

Amazon has filed a complaint against the formation of the first union by workers at a warehouse of the technology giant in the New York district of Staten Island, local media reported.

According to the company, union leaders pressured workers to vote in favor of forming a union, an argument that the lawyer for the so-called Amazon Labor Union (ALU), Eric Milner called it “absurd” according to the CBS channel.

On April 1, employees of Amazon’s JFK8 plant in New York won a fight against the technology giant and after months of struggle managed to create the company’s first union in the United States, which has tried by all means to frustrate any initiative of union organization.

2,654 staff members spoke in favor of organizing and 2,131 against

In total, 2,654 staff members were in favor of organizing, compared to 2,131 who were against in the vote.

“Amazon has chosen to ignore this and engage in delaying tactics to avoid the inevitable: sitting down at the negotiating table and negotiating a contract,” Milner said.

Amazon is the second largest employer in the United Statesonly behind the Walmart supermarket chain, and since the start of the pandemic it has skyrocketed both its activity and its profits and has hired tens of thousands of new workers.

The outbreak of the pandemic in 2020 spurred the spirits of many Amazon workers and other large companies in the country, such as the Starbucks coffee chain, in the United States, who denounced that their employers did not take the necessary measures to protect them from covid-19.
