Amazon union organizers deflated as vote tilts against them

"Workers at a warehouse in bessemer alabama voted against unionizing defeating. The hopes of labor organizers that this would be amazon's first unionized workplace in the united states would have been a rare victory and they traditionally add a union south but workers voted overwhelmingly against unionization by a margin of more than two to one here to talk to us about that. Is stephen basan. He is with our member station w. b. m. in birmingham. Hello good morning. Was this outcome. Surprise won't for a lot of people here yes. There was a lot of excitement. A real sense union had a chance now where this house is located about. Twenty minutes outside of birmingham surrounded by trees. Really not much else in on that. Drive there from birmingham. You see lots of pro union signs. There've been lots of rallies here with big headline names like actor danny glover bernie sanders coming through a congressional delegation but add the six thousand workers that actually work at this warehouse. Very few were showing up at these rallies. Mostly it's been crowds with out of state organizers for the unions or locals in alabama democrats shirts and not many people actually working for amazon so really we didn't know what most workers were thinking until the actual vote count this week where they delivered a definitive. No i mean so much. Attention has been sort of lavished on this vote. How is the mood. Change to after it was pretty crushing. Defeat more than two to one against the union and union. Try to keep up a brave face during a zoom press conference on friday. After the results organizers in the couple of workers spoke including emmett ashford who works at the amazon warehouse there. He sent a message to workers telling them to not get discouraged. The floodgates opened. We can't stop it. So i hope everybody has to get day this news as not discouraged as and we are holding our head high marching or and we will get what we deserve.

Endorsements you're gonna weighty contract in just humiliate that's all that's about so i disagree that dr willis isleta give the last mass perspective on this before i go to the ladies all right so that when a woman bringing out allegation like that that she should understand that you know she's gonna open up the scrutiny. I as a matter of fact. I do know that. And that's why don't come full but you get the one who who who Apologised bring these allegations get money. They don't care they're gonna come forward. They're you know they're gonna make these allegations. They know what is going to do. So the guy now. I wanna say this to guys though you know saying it doesn't matter where when we're when she low light at bet you know reason i used to do certain things to against will however though in on and that's not to minimize what i just said but women have to understand that when you when you bring an allegation like that against somebody. There has to be a level fact-finding okay. They're going to ask you the tough questions they're gonna ask you the stuff that's not saying that make you feel like you're getting scrutinizing this your fault but that's that's that's what they do. They happen in certain that this person did these things to you and that doesn't tell me. What were you doing at the house at this time or were you doing in the shower. Naked all these other things.

"Anything is formed. It not doing anything a you have a lot of money pretty much nobody cares. You know basically when they were canceling you. They want to take away something. So whether it's your your career your livelihood or whatever. The case is acting that cancel cultures. Just gone too far. Far people trying to erase anything that you have done. That is public. That is good. If it's bad it's just going to add onto res awadhi canceling you better. They wanna forget all about good. You did and only one talking about by cancelling you so cancel culture basically just hassling people for things like that you did or maybe embarrassing. Maybe controversial enka castle culture. It sounds new to a lot of people but amanda. isn't that the same as boycotting. I mean what you think. There is a difference I don't think there's a i mean dayrit. Their relatives may be boycotting. Maybe the the grandfather and cancel culture is the grandchild is is the new millennium or the new generation against their version of boycotting. Because if you really think about it when people boycotted something they literally they avoided they. They went to hardships more so to avoid doing something. So if you think of like in the fifties like the birmingham and montgomery alabama boycotts of the civil rights movement and other places jackson mississippi among you know plenty of cities across the country. Where you may you boy. If you boycotted the buzz that meant you had to literally walk or you know the nwa acp had to make arrangements for people Cabs or somebody to pick you up and take you across town to your job to whatever you had to do so they were truly making sacrifices You were boycotting a place of business. But you really didn't have too many other options whereas now i don't think it's so much that you don't have other options it's like it's similar though but it's just it's just a different I feel like the stakes were higher than in the sense of the sacrifices the people who were boycotting actually made and now the states might be higher in the sense of the social media. So it's like it's kind of a switch whereas you know we're talking about the nineteen fifties. The sacrifice was more so on the people who chose to boycott that place because they were really trying to make a point and they really didn't have a whole lot of other options. Whereas now if i choose to cancel or to tweet about somebody if i say hey. Don't listen to the talk to radio show because this was said that was said in. This happened or please don't do that right. But that's that's that's not. The joe rogan harsher begins you. That's not like you know. I can listen to other podcasts. Or i could i mean i can't replace you obviously. You're my friend but it's a it's a difference i think but they're they're they're relative to each other for sure..

"That when disagreements arise that they are handled with tolerance. and how have you handled. Strong feelings If i rise in the group highs they that sort of communication angle dealt with as it were. I'm i feel as though we're just beginning to find a way with how to to to hear each other and to recognize that there are very different strong emotions on both sides and different narratives that and we haven't necessarily heard each other's narratives truthfully and so. I feel that it's a long journey that we're setting out zone and the trust we need. We need to be able to trust each other to to hear and to listen and to to beth things that feel very difficult to bear and i feel. There's another mirror they're witches. I recognize that for both jews and muslims. We are held sometimes almost personally responsible for the actions of ah this who are members of our faith group who we don't necessarily agree with and yet those subtleties awesome tons not recognized so again. It's a chance to recognize those difficulties and two. I keep saying to be able to to speak into. Listen to each other and coming back to what monday was saying about being held responsible for what people in our faith community do. I think most Point because being muslim. You always seem to be you know making excuses for explaining or trying to offer reasons. Why is happened to haul. You're not part of terrorism and you do disown tell you do denounce. It feels forever quantify expanding people. Y'all not fat person and also the jewish muslim thing athena's abune standing level. Because you know we don't we don't agree with what other people unevenly our communities not faith groups do but sometimes it's difficult to get your voice heard out there is always controversial things that get hurt. It's never happy. The the peace keeping the positive stories can always make make a breakthrough. So it's nice to have how group where we cannot stay shadows ideas and say you know it's great to be some well. We can talk honestly about these things and say you know what. Hey i'm just a muslim. You know i'm not. I'm not i resold on a would to be perceived like that so i think it's safe space I would add as well that that. That may be conflicted feelings. Bones that you feel despite disagreement within within your face group. I think i feel. It's very complicated. Series of connections that we as as as up to says we're able to to begin to unpick and explore together in the group and isn't it absolutely crucial that we're having these conversations and that these creative conversations are starting to happen more and more for example line on part of a race affinity group the birmingham buddhist center and i found in discussions that we have that.

It's also it's also a really interesting exploration of. Black Masculinity and the Kohl's black masculinity sexuality you know the thing that I Rabi lent. Woman reading this book is how Tolchard it is Torch Camby Times space desire, and will site decide area. Had accounts of identities he may like. So Jesse's cold one point a black boy trying to be a white boy trying to be a black boy by group of Asian and white boys who had tried to be black boys. kind of set this whole layering of this appointive performances that going on. But also you know the kind of the deep insecurities also a comprised exploration of. The identity. So if you speaks Thompson, you're kind of Whether again, that was a conscious a johnny you taking spoke to Split, black masculinity in rape secure way whether that was just part of Jesse's identity Apple Janney. I think the latter. It's always something that's going to be at the top of my almost everything I do will be felted through tension in terms of being a black male looking in the mirror and seeing a black now but not really fulfilling other people's ideas of blackmail shouldn't be. I'm not something I lift through my whole life. You MAQASSAD grew up in white can cause area while the British national policy. News a stronghold Sundell strongholds vamping until. Some of the thousands. And I was sent to a second Russo. Festival I was had my primary school but despite. Despite his estranged wife but being one of two black boys in the whole year. Sixty percent white four percent Asian. An inmate on this black boy. But I was chosen this had boy and I think at that age and. I saw Steve McQueen's year three and residents as. Saying get three one catch us a seven eight years old. That's when they start to become aware of race class gender. And reversals. Thanks. But. Being ten years old and big. You know being appointed head boy you know for me you know people criticize you'll not professionally unstitched because you're black we'll ask them had always. In a that's any sense. But then my parents sent me to a second juice school. The was failing miserably that had the west reputation fol expulsions, tinge practices. You know violence and lets you said violence against off and the wasp on missiles and the whole borough off will, which is already a very bright deprived area. Simply because I've forever Jehovah's starting the same time. So I had to hunker lots of of racism overt covert is juvenile. From, being top of the clause per from being head blouse, suddenly sort of seen as a black boy. Teenage. Black. Boy. and because my parents have both grown up. In similar situations as well as as second generation West Indian immigrants for them I feel now and I'm. They exhibited internalized racism and the way that they. Raised me so both my parents. So Black the adoptive father kyw white adoptive father cartoon member is an invention by me to expl-. Sort of in a Melissa of easily. Digestible way. For readers in terms of explaining how difficult it is as all black child out be raised in this country in this still majority white country not still very majority white wack and 'cause. How difficult it is for a child to be raised with a black and steered sue the trust himself as a black man. Especially one lifeproof subs the education system prioritizes and exclusive you white male idea of lice. You know or the on Niche Trust Achi level for English. Shakespeare Thomas Holiday. Jamie Prese needs Tennessee Williams Scott Fitzgerald. You know if the poetry was all shems heaney and coverage and once left and Byron Shelley not his all pure pure shaw debt. You know. So again, you just not set of empowered as lack child to to feel like. You have legitimate place in life, and so you ingratiate yourself to wireless white students in particular and Jesse Ulcer is oxygen was witness and all of those. In his congregation all white man. With bricklayers over the day run, the station fog will talk pension decorate. So that's still elders and so as far as he's concerned that the meteors between himself and God and Sir, he fills the need to to ingratiate himself. It feels the need to to what to become like them. What's become one? And I think as he grows older and realizes that that's impossible but never going to be a white. the a new weights sort of ingratiate himself is to become is to be sexually attracted to them to be involved with them sexually. and that sort of feeds back into the level of honesty and explicit sex scenes in Jesse's not a normal. And investor Komo's possum you know he's been through so many things he's done star unique intersection. and. We've not seen sets like thought before by we don't see in films on television young black men from backgrounds having sex with older white men. It's just not something that happened. Visual operators is necessary. As is necessary to sort of write. About what is let's be weights or in a restaurant we didn't see. Even. Sir It just sort of became very important to to to explore about in in detail. But again, like I said, what's this? this file answer. That will be something that I will always be fighting through like this idea, all black identity and how it is applied masculine identity and how it is so often dictated to by the poor pellets would say is the white supremacist imperatives to this Patriarchal Latins And I think. Is, interesting by Jesse ends up on that because it is it's really uncomfortable following. Because you can see what's happening and And black people who have grown up in this country on some level of being complicit in that because for all the reasons that you say we've had choice but to be complicit in that and you, you'll very honest in the presentation of that but it's quite interesting why he ends up when he goes to Somerset I, don't want to give way two minutes spoilers..

So sensibility in times of avoiding subjects because that traumatic song kind of wondered whether that was the case with them whether they was suffering chalmers Sir didn't want to sort of reflect back on that on their lives and fifty sixty seventies living as black people in the UK and being chow blazes in tons of. The fast black people to I'm in huge numbers and all over the country live here amongst white can cost people. You know I grew up in that country while bone in the early eighties and suffered lots of racism. And that's me being lead generation immigrant. So I'm kind of wondering now like waltz the fuss generation has to deal with we have examples in the fiction all's. Andrew. Levy some salve. George lamming at how but I think every generation needs to find out a fresh what it was like to be a Jamaican All Africa Caribbean or African immigrants to the U. K. in the nineteen fifties and sixties because it was just a completely different world and it just seems like what we've seen happen this year in the United States, for example, and with Latin is maps oats freshly at the top of the agenda all over the world it does seem unfortunately that each generation needs to find out a fresh Y or White supremacy exists, but today system exists and is a strong his is as insidious as. On so Just in times of retrieving and rehabilitates the experience of a and four to six days so that we can learn from that as we consider, see over two or three generations what has changed what hasn't changed at many just explain. Noman story in the nineteen, fifty s really I think does explain a lot of what Jesus experienced subsequently is fifty years later. And there's also something around just taming you save at responsive. It's making me think about the way Wayne which Shane played a part in in both in all of those generations you know in that sense it like you saying carrots to Iraq in the fifties, there was some kind of circumspect relationship to the past and was that stupid trauma I owned was let's do shame and there's something kind of echo that. kind of shrouds the whole novel this almost like a colonial shame united that.

Jamaica. Just have such an unenviable instructions on issues at that time. The POPs did foster a sense of needing to escape in people and because of the colonial education the Jamaican children. I received. Written is being almost utopia or paradise. disingenuous. Of the British education system, the colonies fosters this kind of this feeling but the mother country is the place to to be. The person that you won't be and yeah I mean that just sort of makes the disappointment but they. Found when they got hedged even more. Profound. Really and I think. Because of the sort of situation of. This kind of colonial imposition I'm the education system affects Jesse in that affected me. You Know I. Grew up in a very sort of whitewashed can cost area. The BNP were very prominent. in myrow during the time that I was growing up. this toxic situation WHA is choking the black country Ovitz livelihoods the just instructing crush the unions of being put down.

"Because you know, I would sort of I would I see aspects of my parents situation in a month. Um revealed back to me in a band lyrics and they just seem to be an uncanny kind of parallel certainly certainly my own my maybe not in real life. So what was happening between like my assistants and happen. But yeah the thing about the playlist I really I'm so happy, you know, know, it's great that the book is out in 2020 because you know, the technology allows us to do this, you know, like life of people kind of pink ping-ponging between the book and the playlist and sort of reminded himself. So Sons or even hearing them for the first time and think about the playlist. It's not like the book. It's not it took us about six hundred songs on it or something, you know, colossal like that and you know, a lot of them are not very good. At least a minute to it lot of people. I mean, I've got a lot of affection for for most of them, but I don't really sit around listening to the Barron Knights these days off. The thing is every song mentioned is the book it signs on the playlist. And so so that's it's just to give you a allow you to if wanted to immerse yourself further in the book as you're reading it off because it's hard enough to explain the concept of Barron Knights, you know. Anyway, yeah, I remember the Barron Knights perhaps too vividly and it strikes me that you're doing the same as Stewart is doing in life to to explore my mistress. My mistress eyes are nothing like the so do you know you're you're not just saying I love the welfare state. I love Birmingham. I love pop music. But in order to acknowledge that love you have to say about it does have a water in it snows, you know, it does have these features that aren't all that great and I know about that too, but I love it in spite of that and that the the sort of passing musical fads. All the comic music things are just as much a part of our wallpaper as the the grades but I noticed that you also speak unapologetically about listening to other people's album as great art. And that pop music is entitled to that claim. It's not a guilty pleasure for you. It's a common culture. Is.

"Well, that's fine. That's fine. If we don't want to go do it and how stop paying taxes then but as long we do pay taxes and we have a Civic show responsibility, that's the point of the government to do stuff for people and not we don't think that's anathema in this country. And and I do as say, it's a glib joke, but it's one with a kernel of Truth as I say early on the book the people who moan about the nanny state are the people who had knowledge. It's like Jacob rees-mogg, etc. Etc. And I find it. I find it strongly and so I mean as you can tell I'm kind of angry about all this, but I hope it's not dead. Angry book. I hope it's more of a I hope it's funny and fist bump on the tables it work it is it Oliver and actually it has it a quality which I can only remember Richard Dawkins bringing about in me before which is that it made me furiously angry as I read it because I agreed with every word of it, right? You know, it made me laugh out loud. He's very funny. There are so many anecdotes and and personal starting point. And of course you frame it in terms of your own life, but it is also a book and the title brings me back to that. It is also a book in which the title is that clear in a statement it sits alongside wire no longer talking to white people about race or kit devolves common people or a car as Natives and I think Pete's book does this month as well in a very different way that you're you're putting your cards on the table and saying right. This is what this book is about and sometimes as with natives or common people the phrasing of the title. Is is reclaiming that which we have calmed it is it is a polemic but it's a it's polemic and and a polemic and it's got interviews. It's got travel in it, but it's not it's a choice an element of memoir in which not not as strongly as Peter's but I think it changed initially when I learned a p a nice books are coming out around the same time. I mean, was keen on US during summer events together, which I'm so glad we're doing this together cuz I did think that although they're coming from different angles. They have quite a lot. There's quite a lot should there's a commonality about the money thing. So now just totally agree, you know, there's so many sorts of things off, you know, it's a stretch but I liked about 2, it's buffee is obviously there is a lot of anger in it, but it's actually it's a very celebratory book as well. Where is it? Like the way that you know, I loved the almost incidental way that there are certain color parts of Birmingham that I found very beautiful as I was growing up in a completely, you know in a way that you don't analyze cuz you're young And and I really loved the way way the Stewart kind of celebrated those same places and you know in the.

I was filming an interview with Tony Benn the ground on Firebrand of the labor movement about the towers history in nineteen sixty-six along with the Holiday Camp magnets Billy Brooklyn. He opened what was then called the GP or general post office tower. He was Postmaster General and the tower was designed by The Architects of the ministry of public buildings. Neither of those positions or organizations exist. Now with the coming of Margaret Thatcher's new changed Britain the tower as part of the privatization of the post office the first of many dead. It became first to Telecom and then the BT Tower and as we sat in the restaurant, Erie closed to the public for decades on the vague and spurious grounds of it being a terrorist Target. I could suck the mounting anxiety of the Slick besuited PR man. Eventually he came over to our table. Hey, I can't help noticing guys Stewart Tony that you're referring to the building has the GPO Tower. He laughed indulgently now, it's not been that for a long time guys. Can I just remind you? It's the BT Tower as in British Telecom who owned it off been fixed him with a stare that combined pity and Scorn. Excuse me.
