Germany -Amazon dispute continues -April 02, 2014

Hundreds of workers at online retailer Amazon went on strike, a new stoppage in a pay dispute that has dragged on for months. Trade union Ver.di stated that about 500 of around 1,200 workers at Amazon's distribution centre in Leipzig were expected to strike. Ver.di wants Amazon to raise pay for workers at its distribution centres in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement for the mail order and retail industry. Amazon has rejected this demand, arguing that it regards warehouse staff as logistics workers.
