Workers at German warehouses of Amazon were called out on a new strike by labour union Ver.di on 21 December as part of a long-running dispute over pay and conditions. According to a Ver.di statement, workers at six of the nine Amazon warehouses were joining the strike, which will run until 24 December at four of the centres and for shorter periods at the others. Amazon released a statement saying it plans to convert another 200 seasonal into permanent jobs in 2016.
