The vote on whether or not to unionize workers at an Amazon facility in Alabama ended Monday amid the company’s feud with politicians over the issue, which has nationwide implications for organized labor.
Balloting in the Bessemer warehouse began in early February despite the company’s objections, including a push for in-person voting. Although tallying is expected to take place on Tuesday, results could be delayed, with both sides leveling the type of complaints seen during the 2020 presidential election.
According to The Washington Post, the company and the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which represents the 5,800 Amazon workers at the warehouse, could challenge the results with the National Labor Relations Board or before a court.
Challenges could include things like whether a ballot was properly signed or if it’s real.
