A union takes on a retail Goliath

A union organizing effort at an Amazon warehouse in Alabama has received a presidential stamp of approval, said Ken Thomas and Sebastian Herrera at The Wall Street Journal. Without mentioning Amazon by name, President Biden last week threw his weight behind the union drive in a video expressing his support for “workers in Alabama” who are “voting on whether to organize a union at their workplace.” About 5,800 Amazon employees at the facility in Bessemer, Alabama, are deciding on unionization this month, and the e-commerce giant has been strenuously fighting the effort, trying to convince employees that unions wouldn’t improve their pay and benefits.
