Amazon Germany's labour unions on strike again

Amazon Germany's labour unions on strike again

Amazon Germany's problems are not over yet: labour union Ver.di has asked the workers of five different locations to go on strike again. The dispute about wages still rages on.

Wage dispute

Ver.di has urged the employees of 5 different Amazon distribution centers (Leipzig, Graben, Werne, Rheinberg and Bad Hersfeld) to go on strike this week in an attempt to put pressure on Amazon again. The labour union hopes the company will then adjust the wage conditions.

 

The union feels employees are not paid enough for their work and that they should get wages similar to their retail and mail order counterparts. Amazon says its employees are part of the logistics branch, with lower wages overall.
