Poland - Amazon workers demand social dialogue - December 31, 2015

Workers at Amazon have picketed the country headquarters demanding management engage in social dialogue. Amazon, which has been in an extended dispute with German trade unions over the recognition of collective agreements, now refused to recognise the Polish trade unions. The workers demand respect for labour law, the start of wage negotiations, better on-site meals and a stop to the continuous raising of production targets. Unionists are calling on management to recognise its workers are not robots.
