Amazon German Workers Expand Strikes Amid Labor Standoff

Amazon.com Inc. workers in Germany expanded a strike to a fifth logistics center as the country’s largest union pushes the U.S. online retailer to join collective bargaining agreements and pay higher wages.

“The people here are fed up,” Karsten Rupprecht, a Ver.di union representative attending the strike in the city of Werne, said in a phone interview today. “We have to show Amazon that they can’t just do with us what they want.”
