This is a historic step forward in the fight for Amazon workers’ rights. In the United States, in New York, the employees of an Amazon warehouse voted on Friday, April 1, 2022 to create a union. And we swear it’s no joke. In fact, it is the first union in the company’s history.
According to official figures reported by West France2,654 workers voted to be represented by the Amazon Labor Union organization, while 2,131 voted against. “People have spoken today, they want a union”Christian Smalls, president of the union, responded to the announcement of the results.
This historic creation should be a milestone in the company’s history and could be emulated in the rest of the country, such as Starbucks, where unions are being formed in several states.
