NEW YORK — The US National Labor Relations Board on Monday began counting ballots in a union election at an Amazon warehouse in Staten Island, New York, where labor organizers hope to build on a historic victory last month.

Workers at the warehouse voted on whether to join the Amazon Labor Union, a new group headed by the online retailer’s former employee Christian Smalls. The NLRB has said it expects to finish counting ballots on Monday. (Reporting by Jeffrey Dastin and Doyinsola Oladipo; writing by Julia Love; editing by Chris Reese)
