Votes to be tallied in latest Amazon warehouse union fight


NEW YORK (AP) — The startup union that clinched a historic labor victory at Amazon earlier this year is slated to face the company yet again as it aims to rack up more wins that could force the reluctant retail behemoth to the negotiating table.

This time, the Amazon Labor Union and the nation’s second-largest private employer are facing off at another warehouse in the town of Schodack, near Albany, New York.

Workers at the facility will finish voting in a union election Monday. Votes are set to be tallied on Tuesday.

The face-off marks the third time the union is taking on Amazon following its initial win at a Staten Island facility this April, followed by a loss.
