How Amazon’s first union got it done


The Take looks at the historic Amazon union victory.

It was the kind of victory that organised labour hasn’t seen in a generation or more. Amazon is the second-largest employer in the United States and the fight cost it millions. So how did the Amazon Labor Union do it? And what’s next?
