Amazon warehouse workers in New York City voted against forming a union on Monday, dealing a blow to organizers who last month pulled off the first successful U.S. organizing effort in the retail giant’s history.
Votes were still being tabulated, but ballots cast against the union were enough to fend off a second win for the nascent Amazon Labor Union, a group of former and current workers at the company leading the organizing effort.
Ballots that were challenged by either Amazon or the ALU were not enough to sway the outcome.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
