BREAKING: New Details Bolster Likelihood NLRB Will Overturn Amazon Union Election

New details of Amazon’s threats, intimidation and coercion make it overwhelmingly likely that the NLRB will overturn results and rerun the election

Bessemer, AL – Amazon engaged in illegal union-busting activity during the historic union election in Bessemer, AL, that is likely to cause the election to be overturned, More Perfect Union reports in a new mini-documentary. In an exclusive interview, RWDSU attorney Richard Drouko tells More Perfect Union that Amazon engaged in “a hallmark violation” of the National Labor Relations Act by threatening workers “that there would be a layoff because of the union.”Moreover, Amazon’s installation of a mailbox, which violated a direct order from the NLRB, served to intimidate and pressure employees. “The reason why you wouldn’t want to effectively have a polling place at the employer’s facility,” Drouko says, “is that the employer supervisors will go around to these employees and say, ‘you need to bring your ballot in, you need to make sure you vote.’ And you’ll have employees following their supervisor’s instructions, bringing in their ballots to work — which they’re not supposed to do — and feeling the pressure that they have to cast a ballot for the employer.”According to sources with knowledge, at least 20 percent of the total votes cast in the union election are believed to have come from an illegal ballot dropbox installed by Amazon and the United States Postal Service. Two big batches of votes – one on February 12 contained 251 votes and another on February 17 containing 350 votes – are at the heart of understanding RWDSU’s case for disqualifying the election results. As we document in the video, the installation of the mailbox, and the coercion and intimidation of employees that accompanied it, will likely lead the NLRB to conclude a new election must be held.Drouko tells More Perfect Union that Amazon has likely violated Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, which assures workers the rights to organize in an environment “free of coercion and intimidation.” Recall, in his March 1 video, President Biden stated, “There should be no intimidation, no coercion, no threats, no anti-union propaganda. No supervisor should confront employees about their union preferences.”Amazon engaged in a campaign of intimidation and coercion that violated the rules. As a result, the NLRB is likely to disqualify this result and grant a new election.More Perfect Union is the first and only national video team on the ground telling this story. The latest report can be seen on Twitter, and YouTube.
