Amazon receives union representation for the first time in the United States – companies

Here is Amazon trade union representation for the first time in the United States. Workers at an American online store depot in New York have voted to form a union.

The vote was clear: there were 2,654 votes in favor of forming the trade union Amazon (ALU) and 2,131 against. Seattle has been keeping the unions out of its US operations for a quarter of a century. Now it should start negotiations, for example, higher pay. As a result employees in other locations may also be encouraged. A year ago, a vote to form a union at a depot in Alabama turned in favor of an online shopping company. A similar poll will take place at another New York depot at the end of April, and Christian Smalls, founder of the ALU union, hopes to hold elections in two more branches.
