amazongermanyThings aren’t going so well for Amazon in Germany.

Two months ago, the Seattle online giant cut ties with a Germany security firm amid an uproar in the country over allegations that security guards mistreated the company’s foreign temporary workers.

Now, it appears that warehouse workers in Germany are set to strike after trade union Verdi demanded better pay and working conditions. Reuters reports that Amazon workers in Leipzig voted in favor of the strike earlier this month and 98 percent of those at the Bad Hersfeld warehouses also voted in favor Monday.

The strike could come within weeks and would delay shipments.
