On Friday, Amazon lost its push to postpone a closely watched union vote at its Alabama warehouse. The vote will allow 6,000 workers to decide the first major unionization within the company since 2014. The decision by the National Labor Relations Board centered around an appeal made by Amazon last month. The appeal attempted to block a mail-in vote by workers at the Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse on whether to join the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union. The appeal had asked the NLRB to review aspects of its earlier decision and pushed for an in-person election, citing flaws in the agency’s definition of what constitutes a coronavirus outbreak.
