Friday 30 May 2014 | 09:20 CET | News
German services trade union 'ver.di' said it is continuing its industrial action at Amazon's depots in Bad Hersfeld and Leipzig on 30 and 31 May, in protest at the company's refusal to enter pay negotiations. Ver.di chairman Frank Bsirske will support the strike by taking part in a rally at the Leipzig depot at 11:00 hrs. Ver.di board member Stefanie Nutzenberger said the union would not tolerate Amazon deciding pay and conditions unilaterally and arbitrarily.
