The Verdi union has called for a strike at Amazon to finally push through a collective agreement. Also: Simulate different price development scenarios for an open-end knock-out product with the HSBC open-end knock-out calculator.
According to the Verdi union, there will be another strike in the Amazon distribution center in Bad Hersfeld. The aim of the strike is to push through the long-desired collective bargaining agreement for the mail order and retail trade or a house tariff at the US giant Amazon. Amazon is currently using its own wage model. The reason for the call for a strike is the burden on employees from rising inflation and the associated increase in consumer prices. Since Amazon is increasing its Prime membership by 28 percent due to the rising costs, the employees in the distribution center also want to be paid higher accordingly. The tech giant is currently paying 12 euros an hour in Germany plus any extras.
