..."The feeling at Amazon's other "first union."
"I'm over the moon," said Joseph Fink, a local Amazon worker celebrating the union win in New York.

Fink helped organize a new union, Amazon Workers United, at the Amazon Fresh Store in Seattle's Central District. Like the Amazon Labor Union in New York, Amazon Workers United shares the status of being a "first" of its kind.

Like the Amazon warehouse in Staten Island, the Seattle grocery store has not declared allegiance to an established union.

But the Amazon Fresh union is different from the one in Staten Island in at least one important respect: It did not hold an election, and therefore has only limited rights to represent workers at the Seattle store.

Amazon Workers United members may strike and are technically protected from being fired for organizing. But Amazon is not obligated to recognize or negotiate with the union."
