Amazon Germany faces strike threat before Easter

Monday 16 March 2015 | 10:47 CET | News
Trade union Verdi has warned that Amazon faces industrial action at its German operations beacuse of its refusal to sign collective pay agreements, Onlinelosten.de reported. It said the online mail order company required its workers to show commitment and reliability, but would not provide them security in return. As a result, staff will hold flexible strikes before Easter, said Verdi, probably affecting most Amazon depots. On 13 March, staff at the Leipzig site downed tools in the morning and about 150 of them drove to the book fair there to talk to visitors about the company.
