New round of strikes at Amazon: unions call for eight-day strike at Christmas

will Begin the 23rd and 24th of November, just during the Black Friday.

the major unions in The logistics centre of Amazon in San Fernando de Henares (Madrid) have confirmed this Monday what they had already advanced a few days ago: the announcement of a new round of strikes this Christmas. In particular are the 23rd and 24th of November, just during the Black Friday, which is held on the Friday, the 23rd of the aforementioned month. Also stop the activity between the 7 and the 9 of December, during the bridge of the Constitution, on days 15 and 30 of December, in addition to the day 3 of January, the eve of epiphany.

The workers "will try to stop the shipments in a few key dates for the company as it is the christmas period, including Black Friday," said the representatives of the insole in a press release. The plan of protests have approved CCOO and CGT, and is still pending the accession of CSIT and UGT, which represent 25% of the company committee of the center.

two weeks Ago, notified the company informally the intent of the convening of the strikes. Amazon had until last Saturday to respond. At this time, the workers "have not been summoned to a table of dialogue, nor has there been movement on the part of the address of the group in the center", so that today, during an assembly of workers, it has been agreed to continue with the strikes.

It's the fourth round of stoppages in the logistics center of San Fernando. This was the first that Amazon opened in Spain and, therefore, their workers enjoyed a specific convention that is unique for this factory. This expired months ago and in April the company decided to implement unilaterally the agreement of the sector of logistics in Madrid in this store.

The problem is that the previous convention had some improvements with respect to the current in relation to the price of the extra hour, the categories of professionals, the guarantee of higher wages or add-on disability leave. Negotiations "they have been stuck since the last strike" in the month of July, which has led employees to re-load.

The stoppages will be in the most critical days of the christmas campaign, whose purchases have been brought forward in recent years and already produced at the end of November and not in December as before.

Since Amazon refuse to make declarations in respect of the call strike and is limited to noting that the group "believes in maintaining an open and direct dialogue with employees." "We have created more than 2,000 permanent jobs in Spain since 2011. These jobs come with a competitive salary, a full package of benefits and programs innovative education as a Career Choice that finances 95% of the studies for our employees. We encourage anyone to come see for himself by making a tour in one of our logistics centres", they say.
