  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Urges Amazon Workers to Vote in Alabama Unionization Drive” – below is their description.

    President Joe Biden is voicing support for organizing efforts at an Amazon.com Inc. warehouse in Alabama, saying workers should be able to make their own choice about whether to join a union, free from pressure and threats from the company.

    “Let me be really clear: It’s not up to me to decide whether anyone should join a union. But let me be even more clear: It’s not up to an employer to decide that either,” Biden said in a direct-to-camera video produced by the White House and given first to Bloomberg News. “The choice to join a union is up to the workers — full stop, full stop.”

    While not an explicit endorsement of the organizing effort, Biden made his preference clear. “There should be no intimidation, no coercion, no threats, no anti-union propaganda,” he said in the video. “No supervisor should confront employees about their union preferences. You know, every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. The law guarantees that choice.”
