Amazon to offer warehouse workers term-time only contracts

Amazon warehouse Leeds

Amazon is offering warehouse staff who are parents, grandparents or guardians, the option to choose to work in term-time only.

The ecommerce giant said the new contract will mean those eligible can take six weeks of holiday in the summer and two weeks over the Easter and Christmas breaks.

Amazon regional operations director Neil Travis said: “We spent a lot of time listening to our employees and one of the things that we were learning is that they really wanted more flexible opportunities.”
