UGT, CCOO, and Fetico, the Amazon committee in which UGT holds the majority, have called for an indefinite strike at the logistics center in Dos Hermanas (Seville) to "establish the foundations for achieving a comparable salary that dignifies and values the work carried out by all the people in the center." At 11:00 a.m., at the Nazarene logistics center, the president of the works council will address the media at the protest outside the company's doors.
In a press release, UGT has explained that, after several negotiation meetings to reach an agreement for salary improvement and quality of life for the population of this logistics center, the strike committee has decided to carry out an indefinite strike due to Amazon's "unequivocal refusal" of their proposals.
The company "promises when you start your career at the company that you will be part of a family and that the person will be respected regardless of position or conditions. Once again, it fails to keep its word as it treats its employees as worthless numbers, creating fear, anxiety, discrimination, and extreme competition among colleagues, promising them conditions that are never met, blaming different people for mistakes made by the same company, or simply pressuring them with the future of their position to improve productivity."
The UGT union has argued that with the indefinite strike "we want to show that the image that Amazon portrays in its ads and publicity is not what is actually experienced behind closed doors. We will gather at the doors of the Dos Hermanas logistics center to initiate an indefinite strike at Amazon during the Christmas season due to issues such as wages, holiday pay, overtime, and training hours," among other matters.
