Amazon workers at two UK fulfilment centers to strike in August

Britain's GMB trade union said on Thursday more than a thousand workers at two Amazon fulfillment centers in England would take strike action in early August in an ongoing pay dispute.

"This industrial action will spread further: it’s clear the fight for workers’ rights at Amazon is only just beginning,” GMB Senior Organizer  Rachel Fagan said in a statement.

Workers in Rugeley will walk out on Aug. 3-4 and staff in Coventry will take action on Aug. 4-5, the union said.
