Amazon Workers Reject Big Labor
By a whopping majority.
The only thing declining faster than labor force participation is union membership. Indeed, growing skepticism toward Big Labor resulted in this week’s decision by a group of Amazon warehouse workers based in Middletown, Delaware, to overwhelmingly reject joining the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW). The 21-6 vote means that, for now, the team of 27 technicians at the facility are free from the detrimental effects of union representation. “That number is a clear reflection that the tactics Amazon and their law firm employed were very effective,” complained IAMAW spokesman John Carr. “Under the intense pressures these workers faced on the shop floor, it was an uphill battle all the way.” Or maybe the majority simply didn’t feel like being coerced by union heads pursuing a political agenda.
