DISGRUNTLED Amazon workers are upset after hearing their temporary contracts have come to an end.
Kevin Thomas, of High Street, Swansea, was dismissed from his job as a picker at the Jersey Marine site and claimed he was given no explanation.
The 37-year-old said he had been working for the company for 21 months and really enjoyed his job.
He said: "All I have been told is that my contract has come to the end. I am devastated and have been left without a job. I will have to sign on at the job centre on Monday now as I have no other choice. I have never encountered any errors before and I have only had positive feedback from my managers.
"I don't understand why I have been let go and I am so disappointed. I work really hard and walk about 15 miles a day. I feel let down."
The Post has also been contacted by a permanent Amazon worker worried about how the temporary members of staff are being treated.
The worker, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "The majority of the temp associates that have been released are all above the productivity targets that are set and very few if any have disciplinary or points against their names. They are mostly excellent workers and are being thrown out for reasons that are not completely explained."
A spokeswoman said: "We created thousands of full time permanent positions across the UK in 2013 and continue to create further permanent roles on an ongoing basis.
"Permanent employees now account for around 80 per cent of our total UK fulfilment centre workforce outside of the peak Christmas period. Many of these new positions were created at our Swansea centre where we now have in excess of 1,000 permanent employees.
"Temporary associates are regularly brought into the business to help us manage demand and when permanent positions become available, these are filled by high- performing associates who originally joined us on a temporary basis. Unfortunately, we are not able to permanently retain all temporary associates who work with us."
