Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground

"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.

"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views. The company touts its pay and benefits and it's pushing to delay the election, appealing for the vote to take place in person instead of by mail, despite current virus concerns.

"Motors and the United auto workers union have finally struck a proposed agreement to end a monthlong strike of about forty six thousand GM union workers at fifty five GM facilities in ten states one of the last thinking points that had been going on in these negotiations were commitments by GM to build vehicles in U. S. plants there is for US plants in the United States Senate either slowing down production or close all together for more on this story we spoke to Phoebe wall Howard she's the automotive reporter for the Detroit Free Press she was on the picket line with striking workers and she talks to us about details of the proposed agreement and how those workers felt about these latest developments we hear that the agreement will include Hey raises a ratification bonus of more than nine thousand dollars promises by General Motors to invest several billion dollars in US factories over the next four years and most importantly a path for temporary workers to become permanent hello they're the ones who work side by side other workers for half the age and few benefits I had seen that temporary workers would become permanent after three years of uninterrupted work I think that might have been shorten that time line the one of the other things that was a sticking point was product allocation commitments by GM to build vehicles in U. S. plants and we know that there was about four plants in particular that production and slowed down or stopped altogether yes in fact we're hearing preliminary reports that as this unfolds are confidential discussion now the local unions are getting word of when they'll get the small print but dad some product could possibly come back to the US from other places I think in particular Detroit hand track in Lordstown assembly in Ohio we're to where they were looking for different things to build there no one would be building an electric pickup truck the other one to be building a battery cells so that was what they were trying to get done in those General Motors half the have collectibility I mean they have to be able to sell what they build so I think they're doing a detailed analysis on this and again they've got them high profit stuff being built outside the US and so they do have flexibility but those discussions are very in town and the UAW is optimistic what are some of the costs that have been going around with this summer purchasing the GM was losing four hundred and fifty million dollars a week I think they might have totaled so far it's been about two billion dollars that they've lost what we know about how much this is costing everybody other at your ballpark figures and yeah well over a billion dollars obviously to get workers if you could imagine a full time salary if you're earning a three sixty thousand dollars a year you work full time and then you're going down to two hundred seventy five dollars a week after three that's a big drop but the biggest issue that we're hearing is that local taxes and federal taxes have been hammered so you've got states like Michigan and Ohio Maryland taxes and others are not getting tax revenue that's the biggest shocking impact here that people don't realize state governments have taken a tremendous lot in fact the federal government so this is profit this is tax revenue and obviously local sales so that's all being tallied right now and I'm going so I've also heard that there's a big meeting where a lot of the heads are going to be deciding if they want to go through with this proposed plan but even then the strike might not and immediately the union officers and regional directors need to get together and vote in factory level leaders need to vote and agree to all this stuff so there still could be some time before all this is hammered out in addition you have janitorial workers for era mark that actually do the work in GM plants in various locations they went out on strike a day earlier and these GM workers said we will cost you one we will not cross you again so when I was on the strike line covering that I mean you had grown men in tears and said that violated everything they believe again but I contract they had to do so so currently they're talking about resolution for the strike acting forty six thousand General Motors workers but there are others that are still out and they have said they will not go back until that's resolved they were watching and waiting to see the janitorial workers at plants actually cannot run without the clean up staff it's not like your school janitors TV you've been out on the picket lines with the workers themselves as we're doing this you step inside brief just to do this with us thank you for that tell us what the workers themselves are feeling now I know it's been a month that this strike has been going on and how are they feeling about these proposed agreements now possibly optimistic the workers are saying that they really want this to happen but the first thing they said to me a number of them when I came out on strike line and there's very little cry SO one union hall on the flag represents five thousand workers the one next door two thousand all right here and what they said is we will stay out through thanksgiving we will stay out till Christmas we do not want to go back and tell we feel good about the proposal they also feel like the top negotiator for the workers is a working man they say that over and over again he's not the kind of union leader that had the driver and get all the things that you hear he's a working man who believes in the priorities of these guys and women so in terms of the feeling out here it's cold it's rainy there are huge fifty five gallon drums filled with wood and smoke burned you ride in it so called are all gathered around but they are out there people are coming in buying diapers and dropping them off the young family that temporary workers so you have families taking their strike track two hundred seventy five dollars a week and they're stocking up on supplies for young family I was out and they were doing give away boxes of food and potatoes and things like that but the small businesses are delivering meals and the nurses from a local hospital are delivering coffee around the clock TV wall Howard automotive reporter at the Detroit Free Press thank you very much for joining us thank you one space for the developed this week virgin galactic has unveiled the jump seats that space tourist will be wearing on their flights to the edge of space these new suits are made by under armor and are included in the two hundred and fifty thousand dollar price tag for the flight reports say that the first suit for Sir Richard Branson was completed last week and it took ten people five days to construct it the space trip itself will last about ninety minutes from take off to its gliding landing and the most exciting part of weightlessness will only last between five and eight minutes for more on the story we spoke to Michael sheets is the space reporter at CNBC they are a little bit like jumpsuits their spaces in the text and may our huge that folks will wear as they change their trips to the edge of space and it actually this collection that virgin galactic unveiled it actually the suit itself that people wear and then the training suit what where and even a limited edition jacket so there's a number of little pieces in this collection both Kevin plank the sea of under armour as well as Richard branch and you were really excited to show us the beach they are wearing the really cool close up look at these crazy futuristic high tech looking boots and they all that together is made in the multiple different under armor technologies some of them that they've developed specifically for virgin galactic and and then we'll be rolling out to the rest of the under armour lines in the in the coming years the boots specifically do look pretty cool there slip on foods they said that the material use for those boots will show up in shoes for football players but those boots do look cool and the people that are going to be going up into space on virgin galactic the tickets are about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars these suits in the booth and everything is all rolled up into that price right this collection all those developed after that six hundred some Asheron's data bought tickets so far these will be included these are all on a pro bono is the part of the experience virgin galactic really emphasizes a lot on these Asheron's even though the experience lasts only a few minutes on the edge of space the billing tire training regimen which lasts about three days in the flight experience itself that it's all this really amazing mind blowing tell us about under armors involvement in this this is more of a commitment for them to performance sports where I guess the partnership with unveiled back in January but Kevin plank explained to us that this suit was really to take some of their technology they have won this call the yarn that helps muscles recover and uses infrared heat to recover more quickly after exercise and they took some of their coldgear reactor linings that people stay warm and really designed it all together as a part of monetizing this future of apparel technology and as under armors looking to compete against the likes of Nike and adidas and Reebok they really wanted to have something that made them set apart so you can actually buy a virgin galactic branded T. shirts on under armour's website already and Kevin Kline to see was going out that there's a lot more he expects to come out of it because there certainly can be using the marketing musically and you got to love Sir Richard Branson in the ranks of other big guys like you on my skin just big personalities all that stuff you know what I was talking about the city says every single person who goes into space will be delighted with it I think the whole experience of going into space should be sexy good on them for making these things they do look great you're

"All right so we see that the General Motors the strike. the United auto workers the strike continues. I think we're in day eight now. it is impacting trucking. on several levels. of course last week. of this was for our friends at freight waves yeah like an earthquake the two major stories of the past week. hit trucking hard. the fall out yet to be fully measured. as neither are fully resolved now of course the attack on Saudi Arabia of the oil production facilities there and then. it the midnight hour last Sunday night General Motors the labor strike. had an immediate impact to the freight market. course we saw wholesale diesel prices jump like sixteen cents last Monday not including taxes. while. outbound rejection rates spiked. out of the Detroit market. both of those events were quick and severe but in the long run several concerns for the trucking sector still exist. right going back to the U. A. W. workers going on strike. which slowed the flow of parts from U. S. plants to General Motors facilities. the near term impact was rather quick. somewhat obvious. is carriers avoided the Detroit drama by rejecting freight in and around that area. anticipating long lines and potential delays and consignee is of some of these carriers are potentially union carriers wanted to support the United auto workers. but that level of detail not really available with what we have Detroit is the largest producer. of domestically produced consumer vehicles in the country GM of course a big part of that market economy. there are many parts manufacturers in the area that supply the assembly plants that move on the trucks. no earlier in the week last week Martin transportation systems temporarily laid off about a hundred Canadian employees. in relation to the strike as it hauls freight for General Motors between the US and Canada facilities. all of these outcomes are short lived but the implication for the coming months. we're gonna have to wait to see still waiting for the results. of the ongoing negotiation. which as we speak the strike is again a believer in day eight now. they told us at the onset. that in packs would be very limited. if the strike was short once you get into a two week some three weeks with each progressing week. then you begin to see some of the real effects I anyone out there yet seen an issue where you've had a repair needed may being taken into your local GM dealership and due to the strike it's like up we don't have that part. and. those those are the kind of things that are going to really begin to snowball. is the strike goes on. the automotive sector represents under two percent of the total market share of value of goods being moved. the a transportation. in this country. I would have thought it was more than that but. that does not include the raw materials like the metals that are moved prior to production. it's a much larger portion of the for hire Dr van carrier market. which excludes most of the energy commodities like gas and oil. yeah the real issue was sudden change trucking operations are typically not real flexible. as operations require some level of consistency to remain efficient and competitive. they say the cost to shift focus. typically it's too great to overcome. because many carriers typically operate at about a just a five percent operating margin. yeah you've got niche markets like auto parts holders that are specialized in a relatively small amount of lanes. hauling on a strict schedule. reliably. their overhead costs are also adapted to a higher paying type of freight as most of the automotive sector operates on the just in time process as we all do well no. product arrives just before it's going to be used for assembly in it it's not stored for any length of time at all. where's the other side was. the Saudi Arabian facilities you know of realistically it didn't the the impacts of that. I think we've already seen the price per barrel. not coming down the Saudis said that they would have their production back on line by the end of the month so just another week. yeah they had well over half of the production back up and running within a couple of days no I do notice you what we saw the gas price by going to be surprised by. in the. what twenty four forty eight hours after that attack you didn't take any time at all I know we're still looking at two eighty five per gallon for the the regular cheapo on let it outside the studios to wait if I say things went from near the mid to sixty per gallon a good twenty thirty percent. twenty or thirty cent per gallon rather price bump that we saw around much of the country last week. yes some said at the time as a why is it that they jacked the price up instantly when that gas it's in the ground now didn't that there did they didn't pay more for that they say well we're going to pay more for our next load to put in the ground. prices should begin to take down word in the coming days we'll wait and see right. let's get a news.
