Workers at an Amazon warehouse on Staten Island in New York City will hold an election next month to decide whether to unionize, the Amazon Labor Union (ALU) said Wednesday. Workers at the warehouse, called JFK8, will vote between March 25th and March 30th, according to the ALU, which is representing the workers. The election will be held in person at a tent outside the warehouse, the ALU tweeted.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) did not immediately confirm the dates, but said Wednesday afternoon that the parties “have tentatively reached a stipulated election agreement.” A hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning was suspended pending finalization of the tentative agreement, according to an email from NLRB spokesperson Elliott Becker.
The NLRB determined last month that unionization efforts at Amazon’s JFK8 warehouse had “reached a sufficient showing of interest” to hold an election.The Verge
