Biden was glad to see Amazon workers’ voices were heard in union vote – White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden was glad to see that the voices of Inc workers were heard, the White House said on Friday, after warehouse workers in New York City voted to form the first-ever union at the second-largest U.S. private employer.

Biden believes “firmly every worker in every state should have a free and fair choice to join a union,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. Amazon workers in Staten Island “made their choice to organize a grassroots union bargain for better jobs and a better life.”
