08.04.2021, Wired: Amazon’s European workers are plotting action on an epic scale

Gangl was one of around 500 Amazon employees in Germany who went on a four-day strike over the Easter weekend. Their demands haven’t changed since 2013, says André Scheer, secretary of Verdi, the Berlin-based trade union that coordinates actions. The social distancing, the disinfecting, the masks and other measures have combined to increase stress and pressure. As a result, he says, the strikes have become “quite urgent”.
