Update: A majority of workers have voted not to form a union at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Bessemer, Alabama. The result of the NLRB's initial vote count was 1,798 votes against the union and 738 in favor. Hundreds of additional ballots were not counted because their authenticity was disputed. But the "no" side already has a majority of the 3,215 votes cast, making the issue moot.

Original story, April 8: A closely watched effort to unionize an Amazon fulfillment center in Bessemer, Alabama appears to be headed for defeat. With about half the votes counted, 1,100 workers have voted against forming a union, while only 463 voted in favor.

The National Labor Relations Board is counting the 3,215 votes that were cast by workers at the Bessemer facility. The union needs to win at least half the votes in order to become the official representative of the roughly 6,000 workers at the Bessemer facility. Counting has ended for the evening and is scheduled to resume at 8:30 am Central Time on Friday.

    " it is up to the voter to believe it or not."

    Because some arbitrary arbitrator is supposed to be the arbiter of truth. How about this, I appoint myself to be the arbiter of truth. What could possibly go wrong?

    Well, at least most anyone would be better than AOC (then again who am I kidding, most people are clueless). Most of the time when she talks she has absolutely no clue what she is talking about, it's hilarious watching her talking about stuff she has no clue about.

    no moron, because anyone is free to say any bullshit lies they want, and them saying it is not election interference, it's free speech. if you choose your vote to be changed by some rando redneck or russian bot spouting garbage in the internet, and believe it, and don't bother to check it, that's not interference. that's a retard voting. retards are allowed to vote.

    >some arbitrary arbitrator is supposed to be the arbiter of truth
    the arbiter of truth is the voter. nothing arbitrary about that. it's not the job of the world to present vetted, balanced, and honest information to you. it's your job to not blindly believe random shit you hear and let that random shit make up your mind for you. if you don't do that, that's fine too - you have a right to make up your mind whichever way you want, for any reason you want. but don't blame you being a moron sheep on someone. it's not interference. it's you - the retard.
