UberEats, Deliveroo, Foodora: Delivery men unite to create unions
UberEats, Deliveroo, Foodora … All are famous for imposing dubious working conditions on the deliverymen, and refusing to recognize them as employees. Faced with the international failure of the self-employed, in Japan and Norway were born the first unions to defend the rights of the deliverymen in these companies.
Their demands: safer and more stable working conditions, compensation for accidents at work and unemployment insurance. At the end of September, after a five-week strike in Norway, Foodora's delivery men managed to reach an agreement that will guarantee approximately 600 workers compensation for equipment used in the workplace (so far borne by the deliveryman) and an annual salary increase of about $ 1647. In Japan, a victim compensation program was put in place at the beginning of October.
In Canada or the United States, self-entrepreneurs do not have the right to form a union. But the new Californian law called AB 5, which will reclassify the deliverymen as employees, could well contribute to this change. During the past year, numerous events were organized in the United States, Europe and Asia to change working conditions in this sector of activity.
