On Friday, Amazon.com warehouse workers in Alabama voted against forming a union by a more than 2 to 1 margin a major win for the retailer. But the union, hoping to reignite the Us labor movement, said it would challenge the results, citing election interference.
National Labour Relations Board representatives counted 1,798 votes against forming a union, with 738 ballots in favour. A simple majority was needed for victory.
Both sides have the right to challenge the eligibility of individual ballots and the campaign process, but a ballot count official on a Zoom call of the proceedings announced that there were not enough challenged votes to affect the results.
On Friday, Amazon shares rose 1.8 percent, adding to earlier gains.
