Germany -Workers protest at IKEA headquarters -September 27, 2013

Workers from fourteen IKEA stores and one call centre have rallied in front of the IKEA headquarters in Wallau, near Frankfurt. The workers are protesting against deteriorating pay and working conditions since IKEA broke away from the sector-wide collective agreement earlier this year. IKEA management’s attempt to curb the protests by increasing salaries by 2.5% in August has not avoided further strikes by workers demanding better pay, more say over working hours and fewer overnight and late work shifts.
