Amazon workers will also walk out on Thursday [2 March] and for five consecutive days from 13 – 17 March.

Amazon Coventry staff made history on25 January when they became the first in the UK to take strike action.

Stuart Richards, GMB Senior Organiser, said: 

“Here in Coventry Amazon workers are again standing on the picket line after one of the world’s most profitable companies has denied them a wage they can live off.

“It’s a David and Goliath battle and our members are determined to make sure it ends with a pay rise they deserve.

“Morale is sky high and the support from local people in Coventry and Amazon workers around the world has been extraordinary.

“This is just the start of GMB members escalating their campaign for fair pay at Amazon.
