The organization responsible for the protest informs Vice about this. With the strikes protests, the staff hopes to convince the employer not to oppose staff who want to join a union.
The protesters also call on the company to stop tax avoidance and to work greener. Greenpeace reports have shown for years that Amazon is one of the most environmentally unfriendly tech companies in the world.
The strikers and protesters work for Amazon from Brazil, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, Poland, India, Bangladesh, the Philippines and Australia.
Influence on Dutch deliveries
The strikes in Germany and Belgium can affect the delivery of parcels in the Netherlands. There is no company distribution center here, which means that all our orders come from these countries. Germany in particular plays a major role in this.
3,000 people will be leaving the German distribution centers, spread over six locations.
That comes at a bad time for Amazon. During Black Friday, the online store, like competitors, stunts with prices, in the hope of motivating people to buy in bulk for the holidays.
