Amazon workers are set to walkout over pay on one of the busiest shopping days of the year, on 7,8 and 9 November and again on the 24th, which is Black Friday.
More than 1,000 Members of the GMB union are to strike on the largest days of the online retailers history.
On Monday Amazon offered to pay staff at least £1 an hour, frontline staff would see a rise from between £11.80 and £12.50 an hour depending on which location they work.
Next April starting minimum pay will increase to between £12.30 and £13 an hour depending on location.
Rachel Fagan, GMB organiser, said, “These strike dates will bring total days lost to industrial action to nearly 30.
“This is an unprecedented and historic moment with low-paid workers taking on one of the world’s most powerful corporations.
“This is our members’ response to the failure of Amazon bosses to listen.
“Coventry is the beating heart of Amazon’s distribution network. Strike action here on Black Friday will ripple throughout the company’s UK logistics.
“As Black Friday looms, Amazon must urgently reconsider their priorities or risk strike action causing widespread disruption to customers and the public.”
Amazon yesterday announced a pay rise for its staff of at least £1 an hour.
