Staff walk out over pay at Amazon France’s eight logistics centres

An Amazon Logistics spokesperson, however, said the strike action was limited and had “no impact on the daily operation of the sites”.
Morgane Boulard, a representative for the CFDT union at Amazon Logistics, told Reuters that 1,200 staffers had joined the walkout since it started on Monday.
At stake is a dispute over an overall annual pay rise. Amazon has offered a 3% rise, while unions say a 5% increase is a minimum.
Boulard said a group representing several unions had agreed that it would not hold talks on any offer below 5%.

“Within the framework of annual salary negotiations, we proposed wage increases that were above the average (increase) of the Transport and Logistics branch as well as other advantages, and these issues are still being discussed,” Amazon France said in a statement.
