Amazon’s workforce in Italy will go on its first collective strike later this month, trade unions have confirmed.

All 8,500 employees in the country are expected to hold a 24-hour walkout on 22 March after negotiations between their representatives and the online retailer broke down.

The three national unions supporting them accused Amazon of showing an “unwillingness to positively address” issues including working hours and results-based bonuses.

They also claimed that the online giant was “chronically unavailable” for meetings and was opposed to “a system of fairness”.

A spokesperson for the company called the allegations “false”, adding that Amazon had met unions twice in January.

The trade unions’ announcement of industrial action comes two months after the US retailer said it would open two more logistics centres in Italy at the cost of 230 million euros (£197m).
