Over 1,000 Amazon workers in Spain have called their first strike against revised pay conditions and reduced allowances for overtime, reports El Pais, citing trades unions. The strike is planned for 21 and 22 March at Amazon Spain's logistics hub in San Fernando de Henares, near Madrid, with unions claiming that the e-commerce giant is looking to block salary increases while reducing payments for weekend or holiday work. A total of 1,100 Amazon employees and 900 workers employed by temping companies work on site.
