Germany -Amazon strikes continue -November 26, 2013

Amazon workers in logistics centres in Leipzig and Bad Hersfeld have walked off the job in an ongoing protest over collective bargaining, wages and working conditions. Trade unions have announced more actions. Amazon management is still refusing to talk, stating it refuses to ‘be blackmailed in to cooperating with an organisation that threatens to ruin Christmas for German children’. Other frolicsome statements by the management, ‘snowfall is a bigger problem than worker strikes’, testify their dismissive attitudes.
