Amazon is seeking to block mail-in votes in an upcoming unionization vote.
Workers at a warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama, are scheduled to vote soon on whether to unionize, with ballots being sent out on Feb. 8. The National Labor Relations Board said earlier this month that the vote would take place entirely by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amazon filed a motion on Jan. 21 that seeks to delay the election so it can take place in person, with no votes by mail.
