Workers at 6 Amazon web pages in Germany will go on strike on Monday in protest around protection immediately after some workers at logistics centers tested positive for coronavirus, labour union Verdi mentioned.
Amazon warehouse workers in Germany are striking for 48 hours this week, to protest conditions that have led to COVID-19 infections among fellow employees.
Recently, the Verdi informed that the protest would last at least 2 days long.
Verdi explained on Sunday that the strike would last at the very least 48 hrs, below the motto "Good and healthier work", to denounce what it referred to as a deficiency of transparency by the USA retail giant just after staff analyzed positive for COVID-19.
"We are stepping up the pace because Amazon is not showing to this point any insight and is endangering the health of employees in favor of profit", a union representative told DW.
