Germany -Amazon again under strike -September 21, 2015

Employees of online retailer Amazon have gone on strike again. Trade union representatives said they were determined to continue their industrial action in several logistics hubs. The labour dispute at Amazon has been going on for more than two years. The company has offered a 2.5% pay increase. However, trade union Ver.di demands a collective agreement for Amazon's 10,000 employees, similar to the agreement for workers in the country's retail sector. Until today Amazon has refused to talk about a binding agreement with Ver.di.
