Biden admin in trouble with union leaders after awarding anti-union Amazon massive contract

One of President Joe Biden’s biggest supporters in 2020 — unions across the country — will likely not be happy with the struggling president’s latest move, which included a large gift, in the form of a contract, to union-busting Amazon.

According to Breitbart, though Jeff Bezos and Amazon corporate have gone to great lengths to stem any notion of warehouse employees organizing across the country, the Biden administration awarded the massive company a staggering $10 billion federal contract, despite promising to his union friends that he would never reward anti-union companies like Amazon.

A shocking report from The Lever revealed that Amazon had been awarded a $10 billion cloud computing contract by the federal government.

“The contract for the company’s web services division is codenamed ‘Wild and Stormy’ and is distinct from another massive Pentagon cloud contract on which Amazon is also currently bidding,” The Lever wrote.

It added: “A few days after Amazon received the NSA contract, the Amazon Labor Union lost its second union election bid by a 2-to-1 margin at another Staten Island warehouse, after Amazon mounted a furious campaign to halt the organizing drive.”

The report went on to point out that while Amazon lawyers were doubling down on making sure its employees wouldn’t unionize, the Biden administration was providing a cash cow of a contract.

There have been several legitimate attempts in recent months of Amazon employees getting closer than ever to organizing, and a successful bid to do so took place in New York last month. More attempts by other warehouse workers in different parts of the country are expected to follow suit.

However, it appears as if Biden will have a lot of explaining to do in upcoming elections, especially since he needs every ounce of union support that he can possibly muster.

We can’t wait until upcoming election ! Biden/Harris must be gone now! However, must replace Piglosy first with a good Republican speaker and then rid ourselves of Biden/Kamala and things would improve almost over night.
