Union leaders from Britain, France and Germany held talks in Berlin with colleagues from Poland, the Czech Republic and the United States to discuss the rise of Amazon in Europe and how to engage with the online retailer on job security, warehouse working conditions and low pay. National organisers from the German trade union Ver.di, the French CGT and the British GMB view Amazon as a leading example of how a new generation of powerful e-commerce employers treat their low-skilled workforce. Amazon has been accused in the past of using aggressively anti-union tactics.
