Amazon workers in 20 countries are planning protests on Black Friday, which is one of the company’s busiest days of the year.
According to the Make Amazon Pay group, the company “takes too much and gives back too little”.
The group has created a list of demands that has been signed by almost 50 organizations worldwide.
Make Amazon Pay is asking for a raise in workers' pay and a halt to worker surveillance, and strict productivity targets.
As well as the extension of sick leave, ending casual employment and a halt to “union-busting” activities.
None of the Amazon warehouses in the UK are unionized so many employees will still be working.
however, campaign groups are staging protests at several warehouses.
Representatives for Amazon told the media that the company is addressing a lot of the concerns brought forward by the group.
