German union calls for Amazon workers to strike on ‘Prime Day’

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is trading down 0.07% at 3486.90

A German trade union called on workers at seven Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) warehouses to go on strike on Monday for several days to coincide with the global Prime Day promotion.

Verdi said it was organising the three-day strike as part of a long-running battle with the U.S. tech giant in Germany over better pay and working conditions.

“The workers in the mail order centres have to cope with the rush of customers and don’t get a cent more for the additionally intensified workload,” said Verdi representative Orhan Akman in a statement.

Germany is Amazon’s biggest market after the United States, and the Verdi union has been organising strikes at Amazon in the country since 2013 to protest low pay and poor conditions.

An Amazon spokesperson said the company offers excellent pay and benefits. It has said during past calls for strikes over 90% of employees in the logistic centres worked as normal.

Earlier this month, Amazon said it will guarantee an entry-level wage at its German warehouses of 12 euros ($14.25) an hour from July, which will rise to at least 12.50 euros per hour from autumn 2022.

On technical fronts Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) RSI stood at 71.78 and currently stock is trading above all Moving Average. So, BUY position can be taken with following target and stoploss:

TRADE SIGNAL – : Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) – BUY: 3486.90, TARGET: 3514.22, STOP LOSS : 3434.79
