Amazon Italia stops deliveries on Monday 22 March: stop due to national strike
Amazon Italy stops for Monday 22 March for a major national strike that involves the entire company in Italy and blocks deliveries.
Amazon Italy Yes will stop on Monday 22 March 2021 for what turns out to be the first strike general nationwide for the famous eCommerce site, which in fact will not make deliveries during the day in question.
The block derives from the participation that should be overall for the workers of Amazon Italy, from those who deal with the management of warehouses and the organization of logistics to the actual delivery, involving practically all the unions: Fit Cisl, Filt Cgil and Uilt in addition to federations of precarious Felsa Cisl, Nidil Cgil and Uiltemp.
This is well 40,000 workers involved in Amazon’s first nationwide strike, which should be able to completely block, at least for one day, the mighty online shopping and home delivery mechanism.
The reasons of the strike have been known for some time to those who have followed the internal events of Amazon: there is talk of a request for greater rights and protections for workers, in particular as regards the management of rhythms and workloads, the duration of shifts, the organization of these and the request for a general remodeling of the tasks and negotiations.
Added to this is the search for greater stability, the regularization of temporary workers and an expansion and respect for health and safety regulations, particularly in these times of risk. It should be noted that the strike is also supported by Federconsumatori, as if to symbolize the support for the protest also by those who are actually affected by the interruption of the service, that is the users.
You can therefore take into consideration the video game and computer offers and discounts of 20/3/2021 that we have just published, but know that deliveries are by no means guaranteed for Monday 22 March.
