A group of warehouse workers in central Alberta could become the first Amazon employees in Canada to hold a unionization vote.
Teamsters Local Union 362 said Tuesday it has filed for a unionization vote at the Amazon warehouse in Nisku, Alta., just south of Edmonton. The Alberta Labour Relations Board must verify the application before a date is set, but the union expects a vote before the end of the year.
The Teamsters say it's the first step in an organizing campaign designed to bring Amazon to the bargaining table.
"We have local unions across the country who are building relationships with Amazon workers as we speak. The same thing is going on in the United States," said Teamsters Canada spokesman Christopher Monette. "[Nisku] certainly won't be the last."

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has given new license to the killing of Indigenous people in Brazil. Before he came to power in 2019, it wasn’t clear what he wanted to build, but he knew exactly who and what he wanted to destroy: the Indigenous people and the Amazon rainforest, respectively.
“Bolsonaro attacked a woman first, the land, our mother,” the Indigenous leader Célia Xakriabá told me. “We have no choice but to fight back.”
