Professor John Logan Quoted on Amazon Union Hearing in The Hill

Professor and Chair of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan spoke to The Hill about alleged interference by Amazon in its recent union vote.

During a National Labor Relations Board hearing on the results of the union vote at Amazon, a worker from the company's Bessemer, Alabama warehouse alleged that security guards had keys to a mailbox that the company recommended workers use to cast their votes, creating the perception that Amazon was running the election rather than the NLRB. Logan believes that, if the allegation is proven true, it could be a key piece of evidence in the union’s case to have the result scrapped. “This sounds like really hugely significant testimony that is the kind of thing that could result in the decision to potentially overturn the results in order to rerun the election,” Logan told The Hill.
