Unifor NEB Statement on Amazon union vote in Alabama

On behalf of 315,000 union members across Canada, Unifor's National Executive Board sends the following message to 6,000 Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama as they vote on unionization:

We know that a union vote can be difficult, especially when employers such as Amazon go to great lengths to build anti-union campaigns. We also know that workers are so much stronger when we come together through our unions. With a union voice, workers can collectively bargain and fight for the respect, the safety and the protections they deserve at work.

Unions lift everyone up. Unions fight for fairness at the bargaining table and for good jobs in our society. Together, we can build a better world for workers. That starts with a union for Amazon workers. We're with you in this fight. UNION YES!

Solidarity from the National Executive Board of Unifor
