GMB Union has today [Thursday] announced strike dates at Amazon’s Coventry and Rugeley fulfilment centres.
The strike dates come on the anniversary of the first historic walkouts at Amazon in the UK, after workers were offered a pay rise of just 35p. 
Workers will down tools in Rugeley on 3 and 4 August, with the Coventry fulfilment centre seeing strike action on 4 and 5 August.
This will bring the total days lost to strike action at Amazon this year to 26 .
Rachel Fagan, GMB Senior Organiser, said:
"One year ago, Amazon workers downed tools in disgust after managers announced one of the world’s wealthiest companies would be offering a pay rise of just 35p.
“Twelve months on and Amazon is now facing the biggest week of industrial action in the company’s history – across two sites.
"Amazon has thrown everything at stopping this, but workers have stood firm on the picket line and are more determined than ever to win £15 and union rights.
“This industrial action will spread further: it’s clear the fight for workers’ rights at Amazon is only just beginning.”
