Amazon Workers Became the First in the UK to Take Strike Action Over Pay Dispute
- 01, March , 2023
Newstoday: Workers at the Coventry depot became the initial group in the UK to go on strike against the huge online retailer in January over salary issues. Amazon does not recognize the GMB union, which is seeking an increase in wages from £10.50 to £15. In addition to additional advantages, Amazon claimed to offer competitive compensation that has increased by 29% during 2018. There will be additional activity on Thursday and for one week, from March 13 to March 17. A little more than 1,500 people work at the Coventry facility that scans and transfers Amazon products to fulfillment centers for distribution to customers. More than 350 employees at the center, according to the GMB, were anticipated to participate in the conflict.
