<br />
Amazon's German workers came to Seattle today to protest at the company's world headquarters.In America, Amazon's blatant anti-union bias has thwarted attempts by its warehouse workers to have a voice in their workplace. But that same anti-worker attitude is not playing so good with the online retail giant’s German employees who, since May of this year, have staged a number of rolling strikes over wages, working conditions and the mega-corporation's refusal to negotiate with the German union, ver.di which represents hundreds of thousands of Germany's retail workers.<br />
<br />
the protest was attended and supported by local members of the United Food and Commercial<br />
Workers Union (UFCW), International Brotherhood of Teamsters, The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), Communications Workers of America (CWA), M.L. King County Labor Council.<br />
