Thousands of German workers in the Amazon went out of business! Launch a positive confrontation with Prime Day
The six warehouses in Amazon Germany went out of service, really have no effect on Prime Day?
Amazon's annual promotion of Prime Day is in full swing, and thousands of German Amazon workers have gone on strike, joining the strikes in Spain and Poland, and shutting down the warehouse to show the call for better working conditions.
The Verdi Service Alliance called on workers to use a one-day strike to secure the legitimate needs of their labor contracts to ensure healthy working conditions and environments in the logistics centers of the world's largest e-commerce companies.
Stefanie Nutzenberger, senior director of retail at Verdi, confirmed the news and commented that as an e-commerce giant, Amazon should invest more in improving the working environment of its employees.
In Germany, a one-day strike by workers in six warehouses coincided with Amazon's Prime Day. Obviously, the workers’ choice of the date of the strike is also quite meaningful. The service alliance also said that workers in Amazon Spain are undergoing a three-day strike, while in Poland, workers are preparing for big moves.
Amazon responded that only a small percentage of Germany's 12,000 workers participated in the strike and would not affect Prime Day's transactions and distribution. Amazon also said that the Amazon Logistics Center has provided competitive compensation and comprehensive employee benefits since the first day. After two years of permanent employees, the hourly salary is 12.22 euros ($14.31).
“We believe that the position at the Amazon Logistics Center is an excellent job that provides an excellent opportunity to learn and develop a career,” Amazon said in a Reuters comment.
Germany is the second largest market for Amazon after the United States. According to Amazon's annual report, Amazon.com's net sales increased 20% last year, reaching $17 billion, accounting for 9.5% of its total sales. Therefore, the impact of strikes by German Amazon employees is still not to be underestimated, and it also adds a question mark to whether Prime Day can successfully carry out the promotion.
