Union workers march on Amazon

Supporters of Amazon's dissatisfied German workers took their cause to the company's Seattle headquarters today in a protest that drew several dozen people. The protesters mainly came from labor unions here, but there were two reps from Germany, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal. A report on the German magazine Stern's website said that some 1,800 workers walked off the job in three Amazon centers in that country, the latest in a series of walkouts that began last summer. The German Ver.di union is unhappy with Amazon's wages and the lack of a collective bargaining agreement.
