Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is in hot water for promoting an employee-led organizing effort at Amazon after critics noted that she backed out of a speaking engagement with those same employees during a union rally last summer.
The spat played out over Twitter on Thursday, when the Amazon Labor Union, which recently held a successful union vote at an Amazon facility in New York City’s Staten Island, revealed that it was winning by 400-vote margin.
I was told by workers that your folks told them at last minute it was a security issue–not a scheduling conflict. Whether ur district or not, you would think a NY Congressman could've tweeted support–particularly in final weeks–for one of the most important union drives in U.S— Jordan (@JordanChariton) March 31, 2022
