In labour news, the months-long campaign to create the first-ever union at a U.S. Amazon warehouse ended with the majority of workers voting “no.” Seven hundred thirty-eight workers at Amazon’s Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse voted to unionize, while more than twice that number voted against.

But the battle isn’t over. The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union that led the drive says Amazon illegally interfered in the vote, and it plans to file unfair labour practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board. Activists and progressive leaders, including Senator Bernie Sanders, praised the organizers, who they say will inspire similar actions at workplaces across the country.
