Every year again: the pre-Christmas strike at Amazon in Leipzig | Regional

Leipzig – Every year, including this one, Amazon employees in Leipzig take to the streets or outside the factory gates. You want more money.

Despite Corona, around 400 employees (of around 2000 employees in Leipzig) are expected to stop working on Thursday. The strike in the Leipzig dispatch center started at midnight.

“We are convinced that we are sending a clear signal to Amazon,” said the strike leader of the Verdi union, Thomas Schneider, on Thursday morning.

He assumes that more than 400 workers will take part in the three-day strike. The goals are the recognition of the collective agreements of the retail and mail order business by Amazon as well as the conclusion of a collective agreement for good and healthy work.

The online retailer was calm and, according to the announcement, does not expect any effects on operations. He has experience with the pre-Christmas strikes. The protests have been part of the Advent business for many years.
