The Amazon Prime Day begins today and lasts until the 17th, as well as the strike planned by the Amazon workers' unions. A strike that will last 72 hours, which runs from today to July 18.
A consciously planned strike that affects the largest warehouse that Amazon has in our country: San Fernando de Henares (Madrid). The strike that will take place in these 3 days will directly affect the day of discounts and offers that have been common during the Prime Day celebration.
Prime Day may be affected by the strike
The employees of the Madrid warehouse seek to renew the collective agreement, but the multinational has not expressed any type of response to the proposal that the workers presented him almost a month ago.
The problem came last April, when workers went from enjoying the benefits of being an Amazon employee, to being of the provincial parcel agreement and to be under that umbrella without benefits.
In March they organized a strike, with which they repeat the message today. The workers of the largest logistics plant that Jeff Bezos has in our country, demand their own company agreement and leave the one that covers them now.
The employees of the Madrid plant want to return to the agreement that included them until last April. They launched a proposal to the multinational, but almost a month has passed and they have not responded with the demands that the workers are asking for.
Last week, Amazon made an offer: raise wages 1.1% and no sign of the agreement. The response from the workers was clear and direct, since they requested an increase of 1.5% above the CPI plus a company agreement.
The strike continues from today until July 18, thus preventing the normal operation of the Amazon Prime Day starting today, July 16 at noon until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, July 17. 36 hours of exclusive offers and discounts for Amazon Prime customers
