Workers at an Amazon facility in New York defied a unionization campaign, according to a vote count on Monday, a month after the group’s upset victory at a neighboring warehouse.
Sixty-two percent of workers at the Staten Island facility voted against the union push, with 618 workers voting numbers and 380 voting in support, according to results released by US officials.
The election for LDJ5 followed on the heels of a troubled victory by the Amazon Labor Union on April 1 at the large JFK8 Staten Island Company site, which established the first Amazon union in the United States.
The April victory stood as one of the biggest recent victories by organized labor, winning over President Joe Biden and other major unionists, some of whom visited Staten Island before the second vote.
But the Sangh has considered a setback in the latest campaign.
“The count is over. The election is over without the union being recognized,” Amazon Labor Union said on Twitter. “The event will continue at this facility and beyond. raw is War.”
Amazon is also challenging the April victory by the union, saying labor group representatives bullied workers and that US officials from the National Labor Relations Board were biased against the company.
An NLRB official heard Amazon’s complaints on May 23 in Phoenix.
Amazon Labor has dismissed Amazon’s complaints as baseless, arguing that the company is using stalling tactics to avoid negotiating a contract.
