Workers at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Ala., are going to get a second shot at unionizing, after a National Labor Relations Board official called for a re-vote after finding that the e-commerce giant improperly interfered in the first election.
It’s a major victory for the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which was vanquished in the first vote at the warehouse last spring where workers rejected unionization by more than 2-to-1. That union and others have been working to crack Amazon, now the United States’ second largest private employer, which employs nearly a million workers at its domestic warehouses.
