An Amazon sorting center on Staten Island in New York has voted against unionizing, a month after a larger Amazon warehouse across the street voted to join the Amazon Labor Union.
The Amazon Labor Union was born Friday after an improbable victory for Chris Smalls over Amazon. Smalls and his friend Derrick Palmer spoke to NPR on Twitter Spaces.
Chris Smalls didn't rely on traditional labor groups for funding or organizing power. Instead he raised money through GoFundMe and talked to former coworkers at their bus stop and over S'mores.
