London Deliveroo riders to strike against pay cut, Friday 13th July

Deliveroo couriers organised through the IWGB union are set to strike against a rate cut tomorrow morning. They say:

“After a pay cut was forced on London riders, they’ve decided to strike. Join them on the picket line at Deliveroo’s HQ this Friday and demand union representation for Deliveroo’s 15,000 UK riders so that the changes may be negotiated fairly.

You can find us outside Deliveroo’s swanky new office in London from 9am. If you’re concerned that your order of 1 Worker’s Rights is taking a while and you want to know where it’s got to, you can contact delivery customer support on 020 3322 3444.

The way rates are calculated has been changed: previously this was a flat fee, £3.75-£4.25 depending on the city. Now this has been replaced with pay that varies based on distance, with a moving minimum that Deliveroo is completely in control of. We’ve seen delivery rounds that previously payed £8 drop to nearly £6!”

"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."

    Well, you guys are self employed and you own bosses right? Surely you are better than that and can find a better deal right? I have dealt with so many rude drivers that answer to no one and love to tell everyone to fuck off, reality check maybe?
