Amazon Employees From a New Jersey Facility File for Union Election

Employees of Amazon Inc. (AMZN) working in a small facility in DNK5 depot in Bayonne, New Jersey, have are coming out expressing enough interest to hold a vote on unionizing. This development was reported by the United States National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

According to NLRB, a minimum of 60 to 200 from the small facility in New Jersey have submitted cards seeking to organize as part of Local 713 International Brotherhood of the Trade Union.

This comes at a time when there has been a growing interest in organization at the leading online retailer which for years now has been resisting unions at its facilities across the United States.

An election date and terms are yet to be agreed upon for the delivery station DNK5 depot in Bayonne. The company could also dispute the validity of this petition.

Less than a month ago, thousands of Amazon workers from the JFK8 warehouse in Staten Island, voted to organize under a different group known as the Amazon Labor Union. Similarly, employees at a second Staten Island warehouse are contemplating on whether to unionize later this month.
