RWDSU-UFCW Leads Organizing Drive at Amazon Fulfillment Center in Alabama

BAmazonUnion

The strongest effort to create a union at Amazon in many years is underway in Bessemer, Alabama. Organizers with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union-UFCW (RWDSU-UFCW) have been working with employees at the Amazon fulfillment center. By December, more than 2,000 workers had signed union cards, leading to an election set to begin in February. The company is engaging in union-busting activities in response, but the workers are not backing down. Many of the organizers and the employees at the fulfillment center are Black, and the organizers have focused on issues of racial equality and empowerment as a part of the drive.

Read more about the drive in The New York Times or on Twitter @BAmazonUnion and #BAmazonUnion.
