Strikes at Amazon German warehouses up to Christmas

Dec 21, 2015

Workers at German warehouses of U.S. online retailer Amazon.com Inc were called out on a new strike by labour union Verdi on Monday as part of a long-running dispute over pay and conditions.

Verdi said in a statement that workers at six of the nine Amazon warehouses were joining the strike, which will run until Dec. 24 at four of the centres and for shorter periods at the others.

Germany is Amazon's second-biggest market after the United States with 10,000 warehouse staff plus more than 10,000 seasonal workers.

A Verdi spokeswoman said the union expected a similar number of workers to join the strike as previously, when hundreds of staff walked off the job at several warehouses.

But an Amazon spokeswoman said only a small minority of staff were on strike.

"There is absolutely no impact on our customer delivery promise. The vast majority of our employees are working," she said, noting that Amazon uses a network of 29 warehouses across Europe to fulfil orders.

Verdi has organised frequent strikes at Amazon since May 2013 as it seeks to force the retailer to raise pay for warehouse workers in accordance with collective bargaining agreements in Germany's mail order and retail industry.

Verdi said on Monday Amazon employees suffered from excessive pressure, rigid workplace controls, high sickness rates and arbitrary decisions, such as a cut in annual holidays at the Leipzig warehouse to 28 days from a previous 29 days.

Amazon has repeatedly rejected the union's demands, saying it regards warehouse staff as logistics workers.

In a statement on Monday, Amazon said it had created more than 800 extra permanent jobs in its German warehouses this year, with many of the new employees starting as seasonal workers during the Christmas trade.

It said entry wages were equivalent to at least 10 euros (£7.3) gross per hour, which it said was at the upper end of what other companies paid for comparable jobs.
