The NLRB has counted 3,215 votes in Amazon employees' historic union vote in Bessemer, Alabama. RWDSU, the union under which employees would unionize, said Amazon challenged hundreds of ballots. A total of 3,215 employees at Amazon's fulfillment center in Bessemer, Alabama, cast ballots in a closely watched vote over whether to unionize, according to a press release from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union. The warehouse has more than 5,800 employees, meaning roughly 55% of employees voted. In the contentious union vote, Amazon has repeatedly contested aspects of the voting process to the NLRB, which denied the company's request to install cameras monitoring the ballot room in the NLRB's Birmingham office.

The closely-watched union election in Bessemer, Alabama, concluded on Monday. Approximately 5,800 workers at the facility in Bessemer were eligible to vote to join the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU). Amazon had also requested the NLRB apply other enhanced security measures around the ballot boxes, seemingly to prevent issues like tampering. The motion is just the latest example of how contentious the union election in Alabama has become. Amazon, which has staunchly opposed the union, previously sought to delay the Alabama union drive.
