Services union Ver.di has hit Amazon’s distribution centres with another series of walkouts.  Work stoppages were organised in facilities in Leipzig, Bad Hersfeld, Rheinberg and Graben. On the third day of strike workers at 6 out of 9 logistics centres participated. Ver.di’s actions have been going on for one and a half year and were repeatedly reported in this newsletter. Amazon management has been applying the wrong collective bargaining agreement, refusing to bring its employees under the applicable agreement, which would mean raising the wages.
