Germany -Amazon workers stage second strike -May 27, 2013

Workers at Amazon.com organised a second warning strike. The industrial action takes place in a conflict over wages and working conditions. Trade union Ver.di is attempting to pressure Amazon into closing a collective agreement similar to those governing retail and mail-order workers. Amazon workers currently receive up to €9,000 per year less than workers in comparable jobs.
