Amazon response to GMB 'ASBO' claims

The GMB Union have handed a large Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) to Amazon bosses at their Doncaster distribution centre today. Amazon.co.uk is the British division of the firm and union bosses say accounts reveal that it did not pay a single penny of corporation tax in either 2010 or 2011.

"We are proud of providing our associates with a safe and positive working environment, which includes on-the-job training and opportunities for career progression. We offer a competitive package which includes base wage and performance-related pay which increases take home pay for most employees.... Amazon pays all applicable taxes in every jurisdiction that it operates within."
