It was alleged that the tech company refused to negotiate with unions in New York by the National Labor Relations Board has been hit with a complaint for allegedly refusing to bargain with a New York workers’ union, a spokesperson for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) said.

The NLRB general counsel, which acts as a prosecutor, said the board is seeking remedies that include ordering Amazon to bargain in good faith with the union representing workers at its JFK8 facility in the New York City borough of Staten Island, a spokesperson for the labor relations board said on Wednesday.

Workers at Amazon’s JFK8 fulfillment center in Staten Island voted last year to join the Amazon Union (ALU), the first union vote in the United States. In January, NLRB officials denied Amazon’s request to overturn JFK8’s election results.

Amazon is still fighting for rights with the American Labor Board and has not yet started union negotiations. The NLRB complaint came after several Amazon warehouse workers in New York sued the union on Monday, alleging that top workers refused to hold independent elections to become leaders.
