These are just some of the products that make up the top ten of the best sellers during the day of discounts and rebates on the “shop of the world”. That this year – falls Friday 26 November – probably has to face one strike: the maxi-discounts before Christmas could arrive at home or in other distribution points with a little delay. Drivers and employees of the companies associated with Assoespressi who carry out deliveries on behalf of the American giant (about 12 thousand workers plus those who are hired on a fixed-term basis during the Christmas period) have proclaimed for 26 one general strike to block parcel distribution. Too many packages to deliver, too many stops for the vans, unsustainable workloads, explain from Filt CGIL.
