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.
the protest was attended and supported by local members of the United Food and Commercial
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.
