Amazon workers in Albany seek to form union

Workers at an Inc. warehouse near Albany, New York have filed a petition to join a union, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced. Earlier this year, Amazon employees at a Staten Island warehouse in New York were the first to hold a successful vote to unionize.

The unit would include around 400 workers, the NLRB stated. To form a union, 30% of the unit would have to sign a petition. The NLRB added it is currently verifying the warehouse has the required number of signatures, after which a union election will be organized.
