Black Friday: 1000 Amazon workers walk out in pay dispute 

Amid the busiest shopping month, Black Friday, Amazon workers have taken to the picket line as employees protested the U.S. e-commerce giant’s labour practices. 

Multiple reports estimate that over 1,000 workers at the Coventry warehouse have walked out today. It’s part of international industrial action, with strikes set to happen across Europe and the USA. 

The “Make Amazon Pay” campaign, orchestrated by the UNI Global Union, orchestrated strikes and protests across more than 30 countries from Black Friday to Monday, the period following the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday known for retailers offering substantial discounts.
