‘A lot of people are concerned about constant surveillance’ Amazon employees strike in UK for first time


Around 300 employees at an Amazon depot in Coventry have been taking their first ever strike in the UK.

Workers are mainly protesting over pay and working conditions, claiming they are too closely monitored by management. Some say they are even having their toilet breaks timed.

Amazon insists that the company is “proud to offer competitive pay”.
