According to a Reuters report, Amazon employees are preparing to leave a UK facility. The three-day strike, which will take place over a pay disagreement, will start on 11 July and end on 13 July. The proposed strike will coincide with the Amazon Prime Day Sale, which begins on 11 July in the UK and runs through 12 July. The strike isn't anticipated to impact the customers, though, as the warehouse where it is being planned doesn't directly fulfil client orders.
