Amazon workers vote to reject union

Let's face it: unions are dying, at least in the private sector, which is where the movement originated. The only source of growth is among government employees, where competitive pressures do not exist, and where, to be frank, unions should be prohibited, as even FDR felt.

Bloomberg Business Week reports:

On Wednesday night, a majority of a group of 27 technicians at an Amazon fulfillment center in Middletown, Del., voted to reject an initiative to form a union under the auspices of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, according to John Carr, a spokesman for the IAMAW. The vote was 21 to 6.

More than three-to-one! That's a pretty substantial margin. True, the absolute numbers are small, but both sides saw this as a key signal as to where the unions' drive to organize Amazon, widely perceived as the future of retailing, was headed. So resources were deployed on both sides.

The vote, the first of its kind at an Amazon fulfillment center, was scheduled last month after members of the group filed a petition to organize a union with the National Labor Relations Board. Scissors-32x32.png
