Amazon workers call Black Friday strike at Italian hub

Friday 24 November 2017 | 09:55 CET | News
Staff at Amazon Italia's main distribution centre have called a strike over pay conditions to coincide with the online retailer's Black Friday discount day. Around 2,000 workers at the centre in Castel San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Piacenza are set to walk out for the whole day on 24 November after unions called a strike following a failure to negotiate bonuses with the company. Workers also voted not to accept any overtime until 31 December, covering the e-commerce giant's peak season.
