The Facts

  • A second union election is set for workers at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, after labor regulators threw out the results of a vote last year, citing company misconduct.

  • Bessemer workers initially voted against unionizing last spring. The results were discarded after the NLRB determined Amazon improperly interfered.

The Spin

Left narrative

The rerun election in Alabama gives workers an important second chance to unionize, but not enough is being done to stop Amazon from interfering again.

Right narrative

The Alamaba union organizers are bullies who won't take no for an answer. They're already making excuses to reject the vote again if it doesn't go their way.
