This is a phase. This is like a warm-up round, but now the fight is really about to begin."The workers in Staten Island are just one side in a multifaceted issue for Amazon. That first attempt to unionize this year, in Alabama, failed by a two-to-one voting margin.In New York, Amazon says it wants the voices of its employees to be heard and that it focuses on improving. But a representative also told us they were skeptical that union supporters had gathered enough of what the company called "legitimate employee signatures" to file the labor board petition in the first place.Smalls says Amazon has been distributing anti-union literature to employees. And back in Alabama, the regulators say they're reviewing calls for another election on allegations that Amazon violated labor laws during the first one.Smalls no longer works for Amazon. He was fired last year for allegedly breaking a paid pandemic quarantine to protest work conditions.
