People protest in support of the unionizing efforts of the Alabama Amazon workers, in Los Angeles, California, March 22, 2021.
More than 3,200 ballots were cast in a high stakes union election at one of Amazon's Alabama warehouses, according to the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union.
The election was open to more than 5,800 employees at Amazon's Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse, who are voting whether to join the RWDSU.
With 3,215 total ballots cast, that resulted in a turnout rate of roughly 55%, which is higher than what the RWDSU initially estimated.
However, Amazon has maintained that it doesn't need a union to come between it and its workers.
