The German trade union Ver.di ended its strike at the German Amazon locations on 24 December and considers that the US-based online retailer in Germany has been 'hit hard'. About 2,000 employees across eight locations participated in the latest strike, which began on 15 December. The trade union demanded a collective wage agreement to secure a living for the employees. As a result of the strike, Amazon experienced delays in delivery and had to put more effort into delivering on time. The wage dispute started in May 2013.
