Services sector union Verdi said workers had walked out at 23:00 GMT at one of the company’s nine distribution centres in Germany, in the central city of Bad Hersfeld in Hesse state, amid a long-running pay dispute.

The union wants Amazon to bring the pay of its some 9,000 workers in Germany in line with wages in the mail order and retail industries.

Amazon has described its centres as logistics sites, saying that it pays its staff accordingly.
