Tuberville Statement on Amazon Bessemer Vote

Amazon workers “value their Right to Work protections”

AUBURN – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) today released the following statement after Amazon workers at the Bessemer, Alabama facility overwhelmingly voted to not unionize:

“The folks at Amazon’s Bessemer facility made the decision they felt is best for them, their families, and their community. But the important thing is that they had the choice. Alabama’s Right to Work law gives workers a choice in whether they want to unionize or not. It’s unfortunate to see President Biden and Democrats in Washington trying to override state laws and make forced unionization the national norm. As workers across the country and now in Bessemer have demonstrated, they value their Right to Work protections, and I’ll continue to be a strong voice for their rights in the Senate.”

Senator Tuberville has been an outspoken proponent of the substantial benefits Alabama’s Right to Work law provides to workers and the state’s economy.

Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
