Biden added that the association is "extremely critical, at a time when America is facing the deadly epidemic, economic crisis and racial reckoning - revealing the deep gaps that still exist in our country."

The ballots were sent to about 5,000 warehouse workers in Alabama, and only next month will the polls be counted and it will be clear whether Amazon workers will be unionized for the first time.
