The Online retail giant Amazon has to accept that strike action at its operations Parking, at least in some locations. The Federal constitutional court rejected two claims by the shipping dealer and confirmed the judgments of the Federal labour court, 2018. Amazon would not be violated by the strikes of the fundamental right to property and entrepreneurial freedom of action, according to the highest German court in Karlsruhe on Wednesday.
the Background is the duration of the tariff conflict with Verdi. The Union has been trying for more than seven years to move Amazon to the recognition of the regional area collective agreements of the retail and shipping trade. The company considers to be without a collective agreement, a responsible employer.
Here, it was a strike at the sites Pforzheim and Koblenz. In front of the main entrance there is a huge commercial Parking lot, most of the employees also come with the car.
the Federal labor court considered the strike to be permissible
In the case of the actions in the years 2014 to 2016 were representative of Verdi with strikers in front of the input gathered. Amazon wanted to tie up something for the future of the court and invoked its right. Verdi could appeal to the employees as well further away at the entrance to the Parking lot.
The Federal labour court held the strike, but acceptable. In the light of the local conditions, Verdi could appeal to the Amazon employees at both locations only on the operating the Parking lot, decided the Erfurt judge in November 2018. Amazon have to accept the "short-term, situational impairment".Updated Date: 05 August 2020, 12:19
