[Reuters]–The employee vote on the approval or disapproval of the formation of a labor union at the Alabama distribution base of Amazon.com, a major online shopping company in the United States, is related to the fact that the validity of about 500 votes has been questioned. It became clear in the story of the source.

At present, out of a total of 3215 votes, the opposite is 1100, which is higher than the 463 in favor. The vote in question can affect the outcome.

If necessary to finalize the outcome, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), an independent government agency that oversees the vote, will decide on the vote at issue.

Representatives of the Amazon and the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Workers’ Union (RWDSU) can challenge ballot tampering and voter qualifications, which took place privately for more than a week before the ballot counting began. ..

It is not clear which camp questioned how many votes. RWDSU said on the 7th that hundreds of votes were disputed and most of them came from the company. Amazon has not commented on this matter.
