  • Amazon employees in Germany will strike more than COVID-19 bacterial infections

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.

"We have information that at minimum 30 to 40 colleagues were being contaminated", said Verdi agent Orhan Akman.

There have already been major disputes between Amazon and its workforce in America and France, including strikes, lawsuits and factory closures.

Monday's strikes are planned for Amazon sites in Leipzig, Lousy Hersfeld, Rheinberg, Werne, and Koblenz, Reuters claimed.

Amazon says it will have spent $4B worldwide by the end of June on virus-related initiatives, which included purchasing 470M units of hand sanitizer and 19M face masks and covers for its German workers. "The fact that more than 8,000 of our over 13,000 permanent associates in Germany are with us for more than five years proves that we are a fair employer", a spokesperson said in a statement to TechCrunch.
