Delivering the sweet taste of victory: Deliveroo drivers win!

Deliveroo drivers celebrating their win

From the IWGB Couriers and Logistics Branch:

**Breaking News**

The delegation of drivers have just exited the Deliveroo head office, having finished negotiations with Management. They agreed to the following:

– No victimisation
– No new contract
– Even if drivers have signed the new contract already, it no longer has effect and you are not bound to it
– This will be a trial until 14th September when Deliveroo will meet again with workers to assess the month’s pay
– If you don’t want to be on the trial, you WILL have to move zone, but you will be able to move to any zone of YOUR choice and be guaranteed the same hours you are currently on.

Of course, there’ll be more struggle in the days and weeks to come, and there’s a lot more to be said about the last few days of the strike. But for the moment, the drivers are celebrating management’s climb-down over contract imposition as a victory, and we should too. Their determination, solidarity and direct action is a shining example of what it takes to win. Congratulations to the Deliveroo drivers!


About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
