Amazon workers at a vast depot in Coventry are poised to go on strike in the new year, demanding pay of £15 an hour, after securing a historic yes vote in a ballot for industrial action.

This time the turnout was 63%, with 98% of those backing strike action, marking the first time Amazon workers in the UK have voted to do so.

Amazon says it is unlikely to have an impact on customers because the plant is not a fulfilment centre, dispatching parcels. However, the GMB is hopeful of causing significant disruption.
