NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. National Labor Relations Board on Monday began counting ballots in a union election at an Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) 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.
