A group of Amazon.com Inc. workers in New York City's Staten Island has withdrawn a petition to hold a union election, a spokeswoman for the U.S. National Labor Relations Board confirmed on Friday.
The group, known as the Amazon Labor Union, filed its petition last month, joining an escalating push by unions to organize Amazon's vast network of warehouse workers.
It was unclear why the Amazon Labor Union withdrew its petition. Chris Smalls, a leader of the group and a former employee at the Staten Island warehouse, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
"Our focus remains on listening directly to our employees and continuously improving on their behalf," Kelly Nantel, an Amazon spokeswoman, said in a statement.
Amazon raised doubts last month about whether the Amazon Labor Union had gathered enough legitimate signatures to hold a union election.

- "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer rings the lightning round bell on American private equity giant Blackstone, Chinese EV maker Nio and U.S. electric vehicle charging company EVgo.
Blackstone: "We know Blackstone's had a giant run. You can actually say it's been 100 points of recommending the stock. They're a very good company that I think can go even higher still."
Nio: "We don't need Nio. We've got Tesla. We've got Rivian. We've got Fisker. And we've got Lucid. You name your poison. We don't need to go overseas [to China]."
EVgo: "This is a tough one. And I'll tell you why it's a tough one. All these stocks have just had a major run up, just a huge run up. And when we've gotten involved in these after the runs, it has always crushed us. I don't think this time will be any different."
