business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  From Vox:

"Amazon CEO Andy Jassy appears unwilling to accept the outcome of the historic union election in Staten Island that marked the first win by a union at an Amazon warehouse in the United States.

"In an onstage interview at the Code Conference in Beverly Hills, California, on Wednesday, Jassy claimed 'very disturbing irregularities' in the vote of workers at the JFK8 warehouse in New York City, and alluded to a prolonged battle with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which oversaw the election. Amazon had indeed contested the union victory, claiming more than 20 issues with the union’s behavior, including harassment of voters and how the NLRB ran and staffed the election. But an NLRB official who oversaw the objection hearing recently recommended that all of Amazon’s objections be thrown out and that the Amazon Labor Union win be certified. Jassy’s comments on Wednesday suggest Amazon will continue to battle the NLRB on the issue.

"'I think that’s going to take a long time to play out because I think it’s unlikely the NLRB is going to [rule] against themselves,' Jassy said on Wednesday."
