Amazon wins push against unionization

After countless squabbles with politicians and journalists on social media, the global tech company Amazon has squashed a unionization attempt by its Alabaman workers.

The vote for the warehouse to join the RWDSU (Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union) saw Amazon win at 1608 votes to 738 votes.

Support for unionization

Political endorsements included the likes of Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and President Joe Biden.

The spark for unionization is believed to be both working conditions (no time for bathroom breaks) and inadequate wages.

Opposition of unionization

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos reportedly told executives that they weren’t being stern enough against critics. What followed were threads of arguments from official Amazon executives, attempting to disprove claims from progressive legislators.

Furthermore, the official Twitter account of Amazon News took action, dismissing Rep Mark Pocan’s citations of employees urinating in bottles. Countless replies ridiculed the response, using anecdotes, formal Amazon letters, and even polls.
