Amazon employees in Germany set to strike for ~$14 hourly rate

Apr 30 2013

Workers in two Amazon facilities in Germany--in Leipzig and Bad Hersfeld--have voted to authorize a strike that could begin within three weeks.

Amazon, which employs about 9,000 people in Germany, has refused to negotiate on a collective bargaining agreement with the union. According to Reuters, the union in Leipzig wants "starting pay of 10.66 euros ($13.89) an hour, compared with 9.30 euros now. In Bad Hersfeld, they want pay of 9.83 euros to be increased to 12.18 euros."
