The vice president of Amazon UK is exited that staff are getting a pay rise. Still push but in line with ALL other companies out there with similar work like uk mail, first post ect. The exception is UPS which are really good wages and conditions, just above RM.. Amazon are tossers who treat their staff like crap. Jumping about a centre with a pda strapped to your wrist seeing how many items you pick and how far you walk. OH WAIT, RM have just did that in DELIVERY. But at least the union is there. Not anywhere near as strong as it was, but still one of the stronger unions out there even against unions like unison with a couple of million members in the public service and they're crap, believe me, I've just lately left. RM are still pretty decent in wages and conditions but the onslaught against them will really kick in soon and EVERYONE in the OPG who's not already a member should join a.s.a.p. Reps, get your fingers out and get the joining forms signed up. :thumbup
