SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A local director for the U.S. National Labor Relations Board has actually provided a choice buying a re-run of a union election at an Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:) center in Alabama, a spokesperson for the NLRB stated on Monday.

Workers at the storage facility in Bessemer, Alabama, turned down forming a union by a more than 2-to-1 margin in April. But in August, an NLRB hearing officer stated the business’s conduct around the previous vote hindered the Bessemer union election.

“Today’s choice verifies what we were stating all along – that Amazon’s intimidation and disturbance avoided employees from having a reasonable say in whether they desired a union in their work environment,” Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), said in a statement.

Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel said in a statement that the company’s employees overwhelmingly voted against joining the RWDSU this year. “It’s frustrating that the NLRB has actually now chosen that those votes shouldn’t count.”
