    From the above story:

    “We respect the individual rights of our associates and have an open-door policy that allows and encourages associates to bring their comments, questions and concerns directly to their management teams. "
    And then they will harass, intimidate and fire them.
    If they live though the brutal hot summer, or the cold winter conditions inside these facilities.

    It annoys me every time I hear employees referred to as associates and team members. They are only numbers and a commodity to be managed. To me it's all just a bunch of rah rah b/s.

    This is not what I thought.
    A small group, 30 people, are voting.
    This facility has around 1500 people !

    A small group of Amazon.com Inc technicians at a distribution center in Delaware are voting Wednesday whether to join a union to push for better benefits and safety rules.
    Around 30 technicians are voting on whether to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM). A 'yes' vote, requiring a simple majority of those who cast a ballot, would mean the first union organization of Amazon employees in the United States.

    It does not affect the vast majority of the 1,500 or so packers and shippers who work at the facility, one of more than 40 distribution centers in the United States.
    Yahoo!

    The first news report didn't mention the small number of employees.
    The word "union" and "vote" sure can cause a ripple of fear in the corporate world.
