Amazon Requests In-Person Union Vote in Alabama, Not So "Woke" When It Matters!

Amazon is worried about the union votes being performed by mail-in ballot, instead of being done in person. I wonder why that is?

Amazon.com Inc. is asking the National Labor Relations Board to consider having workers vote in person -- rather than by mail -- on a proposal to form a union at an Alabama warehouse.

The company formally requested a postponement of the vote so the labor regulator can reconsider its earlier ruling. Under the current plan, workers will have most of the next two months to vote by mail.

A group of workers at Amazon’s Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse filed paperwork in November for an election to decide whether to be represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, a rare step for workers at a company whose U.S. workforce isn’t unionized. The NLRB, which oversees union votes, earlier this month said the vote would be conducted by mail, citing standards set up during the pandemic to keep workers and staffers safe.

The world’s largest online retailer said that a mail election raised the risk of fraud and the coercion of workers. It also said the process would depress turnout, arguing that as many as 29% of its more than 5,800 employees eligible to vote wouldn’t do so or would return incorrectly completed ballots.

You can't make this stuff up.

For a full year, all we've heard about in the news is how safe and secure mail-in voting is. Not just states in the U.S., but how safe mail-in voting is as a concept. When it's obvious to anyone paying attention that mail-in voting is NOT safer and more secure than in-person voting. But don't pay attention to logic and facts, just listen to what we tell you, and believe what we tell you.

Remember. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released a statement about the integrity of the elections and the voting machines used in the election. They state, "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised." Of course they didn't mention anything about mail-in voting in their statement, after all that's not cyber security related.

The people at Amazon know that the mail-in votes are subject to fraud --they have admitted it, that's why they are pushing against it. Amazon has a stake in keeping the union OUT of Amazon warehouses. Collective bargaining agreements always cost the employer more money, so it's understandable why Amazon want's to keep the union out.

But I thought the left is always pro-union? Leftists never operate like "good" leftists when their own interests are at stake.

Just another illustration of absurdity.

I believe that for the United States of America to survive, we will have to get back to our roots.
