Ver.di announces more strikes at Amazon sites

Friday 22 January 2016 | 10:42 CET | News
German labour union Ver.di has announced further strikes at Amazon sites in Germany as well in Poland and the Czech Republic for this year, handelsblatt.com reports. The union is demanding a collective wage agreement for the retail and mail order segment, while Amazon categorically rejects this. This has triggered walkouts since May 2013.
