deliveroo strike

On Tuesday 26 February, Deliveroo couriers in Manchester struck from 11 a.m. onwards, demanding better pay and other demands.

They have the same core demands as in many places across the country — £5 per delivery, paid waiting time at £10/hour, £1 per extra mile travelled – plus some extra demands. They have been supported by Manchester IWW. This was the second strike in a fortnight, following the Valentine’s day strike which was part of a nationally co¬ordinated strike, in turn inspired by a series of strikes in Bristol which had started to spread elsewhere.

Deliveroo anger grows

On Saturday 23 February, while working as a Deliveroo meal courier, I came across the scene of an appalling crash between one of my colleagues and a car, a few minutes after it had happened. The Deliveroo courier′s motorbike looked pretty smashed up, and the rider was lying at least five metres further down the road, possibly with broken legs and a head injury. There were many people helping, and the ambulance arrived soon, so I didn′t stick around long and don′t know the eventual outcome. I think everyone probably lived.

Deliveroo couriers are due to strike again on 14 February, for demands including a minimum payment of £5 per drop, paid waiting times of £10/hour, and more. An activist involved in the Couriers and Logistics branch of the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB) spoke to Solidarity about the strike.

Deliveroo couriers in a number of cities are planning further strikes on 14 February. Bristol is the flagship city for the strike, where couriers are best organised, and have lots of action planned that’ll be revealed on the strike day itself.

Strike action by Deliveroo couriers has spread across the country, with simultaneous strikes having been held in various locations over pay, on 1 February. These strikes were inspired by an energetic and visible strike that took place in Bristol on the 18 January, and precipitated by steadily decreasing pay.

Deliveroo strike on 1 February

Deliveroo couriers

Bristol couriers working for the meal-delivery company Deliveroo have voted to strike again on Friday 1 February, this time to be joined by couriers from at least four other cities.

Like many courier companies, Deliveroo falsely categorise us as “self-employed independent contractors”, so depriving us of any workers’ rights, and paying us only per order with no hourly minimum.

The net weekly pay has steadily reduced over the last six months or so. We have been demanding higher pay and a hiring freeze (full demands at bit.ly/demandsBC).
