Amazon Workers Across Europe Strike On Black Friday

Amazon workers across the ocean are making their voices heard this Black Friday.

Reuters reports:

“Workers at Amazon logistic centers in Germany and Spain staged strikes on Friday, walking off the job on Black Friday, the discount spending spree that kicks-off the start of the crucial Christmas shopping season.

Amazon Germany said around 620 workers were participating in the strikes at its Bad Hersfeld and Rheinberg facilities but the majority of employees were continuing to work and there was no impact on customer orders.

Germany’s Verdi services union had called for Amazon workers to strike for 24 hours until midnight on Friday, demanding better pay and labor contracts that guarantee healthy working conditions.

‘We are entering the end of year spurt, the most stressful time for employees,’ said Verdi representative Mechthild Middeke. ‘Especially on a day like Black Friday, employees should be the central focus.'”
