German Amazon workers strike

Workers at Amazon.com's German operations are set to go on strike today, the third day-long walkout in as many weeks, in a dispute over pay and benefits. The Verdi union said it has asked workers to begin the strike at Amazon.com's logistics centres in Bad Hersfeld and Leipzig from 4am and 4.30am today respectively. About 600 workers at the Bad Hersfeld facility and around 300 in Leipzig went on strike for two days last month.
