Nagasaki Amazon Delivery Workers Announce Strike

A group of freelance Amazon delivery workers in Nagasaki announced a strike set for March 8, potentially affecting around 5,000 parcel deliveries. This follows a unilateral termination notice from a Yokohama subcontractor. The workers, facing employment threats, demand job security from the primary subcontractor. This action could mark the first nationwide strike by Amazon delivery personnel in Japan, with 60-80 local employees and sorters expected to participate. The workers have previously formed a union branch demanding better pay and reduced parcel loads. Source: NHK
