One way in which SR Holguin, PC ensures our clients and their members stay informed is by keeping you updated on recent developments relating to workers’ rights. Today’s updates come following the April 9, 20021 release of results in the Amazon Union representation election.
According to the NLRB, there were approximately 3,041 employees of Amazon’s facility in Bessemer, Alabama who “mailed in ballots indicating whether they want to be represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union” (RWDSU).
Of the 5,876 eligible voters, 738 votes were cast in favor of representation by the RWDSU, and 1,798 votes were cast against representation by the RWDSU. 76 ballots were void, and 505 ballots were challenged. As such, “[c]hallenges are not sufficient in number to affect the results of the election.” Therefore, a “majority of the valid votes counted plus challenged ballots has not been cast for” representation by the RWDSU. “The parties have five business days to file objections contesting the conduct or results of the election.”
We hope these updates are helpful to you.
