Amazon staff are set to strike on Tuesday in a long-running dispute over pay. Members of the GMB union at the online giant's Coventry site in the West Midlands will walk out for three days, and again on November 24 - Black Friday - in a major blow to UK consumers.

The union announced that around 1,000 workers will be on strike after criticising a pay offer it said was worth £1 an hour. Rachel Fagan, GMB organiser, said in a statement: "The action will hit some of Amazon's busiest days in the lead-up to Black Friday and will bring total days lost to industrial action to nearly 30.

"This is an unprecedented and historic moment with low-paid workers taking on one of the world's most powerful corporations. This is our members' response to the failure of Amazon bosses to listen. Coventry is the beating heart of Amazon's distribution network; strike action this week and on Black Friday will ripple throughout the company's UK logistics.
