Say they want collective bargaining, healthier workplaces, better treatment

Amazon.com workers in Germany walked off the job Monday to demand better wages and treatment, just as the e-commerce giant heads into the thick of Christmas gift-ordering.

The Ver.di union said a round of walkouts in Leipzig, Bad Hersfeld and Graben was planned in tandem with picketing outside of Amazon's headquarters in Washington state.
