Amazon Requests In-Person Union Vote in Covid-Hit Alabama

Amazon.com Inc. is asking the National Labor Relations Board to consider having workers vote in person -- rather than by mail -- on a proposal to form a union at an Alabama warehouse.

The company formally requested a postponement of the vote so the labor regulator can reconsider its earlier ruling. Under the current plan, workers will have most of the next two months to vote by mail.

In documents dated Thursday, Amazon objected to that decision, saying the board had unfairly dismissed the company’s argument that the safety of its facility should be considered separately from the surrounding Jefferson County and the wider state of Alabama, where the Covid-19 positive test rate this month rose above 20%.



But here is the best part!



The world’s largest online retailer said that a mail election raised the risk of fraud and the coercion of workers.




Honestly, if that doesn't make you laugh, nothing will.

I wonder if labor unions by and large are going to eventually abandon the democrat party and their big tech allies?

I'm pretty sure this one might:



This is what they have to say now:



The Biden Administration’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit on day one of his presidency is both insulting and disappointing to the thousands of hard-working LIUNA members who will lose good-paying, middle class family-supporting jobs. By blocking this 100 percent union project, and pandering to environmental extremists, a thousand union jobs will immediately vanish and 10,000 additional jobs will be foregone.

Elections have consequences.

When it affects their own wishes, they object to it and admit it is likely candidate for mass fraud. Just wow, that is sickening to see that level of double standard employed.

The most shocking part of this article to me is not the massive hypocrisy of a oligarch corporation, it is that Amazon has a union workforce.

Must be the worst union in the world given their slave-like employment conditions. Circus animals have a better union.

But the fun part is that people like you and I didn't vote for it, didn't want it and are not in charge of it at all.

Let the good times roll!!!

I know, you know.

It's fun to watch the leftists squirm when they get called out on their utter corruption.

They own all of this now.

Did Amazon come out in favor of mail-in voting for the US election?

The DNC did, which Amazon backs politically.

So same thing to actual rational people...

Okey dokey. But they seem to back Republicans pretty strongly as well.


While Democrats received the majority of the money, Amazon has one of the highest Republican funding rates among “Big Tech” donors, contributing $922,000, or 14 percent of total funds, to federal Republican candidates.

6:1 against isn't pretty strongly. What newspaper does Bezos own and what did they say about mail-in ballots?

Out if the 8.9 million, just under one mil went to something republican.

Naw!! The best part is when they show up to vote, there'll be a Dominion voting box waiting to count their ballots.

I can see it now!!

You convinced me.
Amazon is nothing but a two faced outfit who doesn't like unions so makes it harder for union members to vote.
