Rome, December 7 - Labour ministry inspectors
visited the Italy office of Amazon at Castel San Giovanni near
Piacenza Thursday to see if it was respecting "norms for
safeguarding work relations and social legislation vis-a-vis
the staff employed", the ministry said.
The initiative was part of planned inspections and had a
"priority attention on the sector of logistics and movement of
merchandise".
The inspectors are quizzing workers about their work
conditions.
Over 500 workers at the office, Amazon's main hub in Italy,
struck on Black Friday recently, one of the year's busiest
shopping days, after the company refused to meet demands on
bonuses and work conditions.
The workers also want pay raises to compensate for mandatory
night shifts, overtime, or working six days in a row to keep up
with logistical demands.
Additionally, starting from Black Friday, the striking
workers have refuses overtime during the holiday season -
typically the busiest season for the company - until December
31st.
The Piacenza hub has 1,600 permanent employees, and it was
the first one built in Italy after Amazon launched a local site
there in 2010.
