Region 29-Brooklyn Announces Results of JFK8 Amazon Ballot Count

Office of Public Affairs


Brooklyn, NY—Region 29 of the National Labor Relations Board completed a ballot count on April 1, 2022 in a union election involving employees at an Amazon warehouse in Staten Island, New York choosing whether or not to be represented by the Amazon Labor Union (ALU).  

The ballot count was conducted by NLRB Region 29 employees at the Brooklyn Regional office. The resultant Tally of Ballots shows the following results:  

Approximate number of eligible voters 


Number of void ballots    


Number of votes cast for the Petitioner, ALU 


Number of votes cast against participating labor organization  


Number of valid votes counted 


Number of challenged ballots  


Number of valid votes counted plus challenged ballots 


The challenged ballots are not determinative. A majority of the valid votes counted has been cast for the Petitioner, the Amazon Labor Union. The results of this count will not be certified until the Region processes any objections the parties may file. Any objections to the election are due within five business days after the preparation of the tally, which is Friday, April 8, 2022. 

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees, employers, and unions from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year. Region 29 serves areas in New York from its Regional Office in Brooklyn.
