Amazon UK workers set to strike for first time in pay dispute

Hundreds of Amazon workers at the fulfilment centre have voted to walk out in anger over the company’s 50 pence per hour pay offer.

This is the first ever Amazon in the UK.

Members of the GMB union at the US tech company’s Coventry warehouse are due to walk out on 25 January as part of a fight for better pay.

“GMB urges Amazon UK bosses to give workers a proper pay rise and avoid industrial action altogether,” the union’s senior organiser Amanda Gearing said.

“They’ve shown they’re willing to put themselves on the line to fighting for what’s right.

“But people working for one of the most valuable companies in the world shouldn’t have to threaten strike action just to win a wage they can live on.”
