Amazon Workers Reject Union in New York After Labor Victory at Separate Facility
Amazon.com workers voted against unionizing at a facility on Staten Island, N.Y., a win for the company after a loss at another warehouse in the borough last month.
The National Labor Relations Board said 62% of workers who cast valid ballots from a location site named LDJ5 voted not to form a union. The count was 618 to 380 against unionization, the NLRB said. The results Monday dealt a blow to organizers who hoped to build on their success from an April election, where workers at a warehouse named JFK8, Amazon’s largest on Staten Island, voted to establish the first U.S. union inside the e-commerce giant.
