Description: Amazon said on Friday it was in talks with employees in Poland after unions threatened strike action, seeking higher pay in distribution centres. The move follow strikes this year in Spain and Germany, where workers demanded higher pay and better working conditions. “We continue to run our business as usual, while focusing on direct dialogue with our employees, which is the most effective way to quickly respond to their needs,” Amazon said in a statement sent to Reuters via e-mail. On Thursday unions in Poland demanded Amazon nearly double its employees’ pay, which stands at around 17.5-19.5 zlotys ($4.58-$5.10) per hour for a low-level position depending on the region, and improve working conditions. “Amazon has created more than 14,000 good jobs in Poland with very attractive pay on top of industry-leading benefits and skills training opportunities — all in a modern, comfortable, and safe working environment,” Amazon said. Around 1,000 of Amazon’s workers in Poland are members of trade unions. “Amazon has not yet addressed our demands,” Maria Malinowska of the Worker’s Initiative union said on Friday.
