Amazon workers in Germany to continue strikes in 2014

Workers at Amazon.com Inc’s German operations plan to continue their strikes next year, the Verdi labor union said on Friday, in a dispute over pay that has already been raging for several months. “We will continue to strike, also next year,” Verdi representative Joerg Lauenroth-Mago said. Hundreds of workers in Amazon’s logistic centers in Bad Hersfeld and Leipzig have been on strike since Monday, in actions due to end on Saturday, December 21, threatening to disrupt shipments in the Christmas shopping season. Amazon said earlier this week 1,115 staff had joined the strikes at the three sites, but said there had been no delays to deliveries.
