Deliveroo workers win victory after strike

Deliveroo
The Revolutionary Communist Group in London has been supporting the striking Deliveroo workers, who staged pickets and protests between 10-16 August to highlight the company’s attempts to attack their wages and conditions. At present Deliveroo bikers and riders are paid £7 an hour, plus a £1 extra for each delivery; however the company is attempting to switch them onto a scheme whereby they are paid £3.75 per delivery.  The sustained action against this attack has focussed media attention onto the so-called ‘gig economy’ and garnered a lot of much-needed support for the strikers. The drivers and their union, the IWGB, along with other supporters have been organising daily pickets of the Deliveroo head office, strikes, and 'ride-arounds' to put pressure on restaurants using Deliveroo. In the face of the sustained strike action and boycott, Deliveroo have now withdrawn the requirement for workers to sign a new contract, and over a one month 'trial' of the new system workers wages will be guaranteed. There is now a need to strengthen the organisation of the drivers ready for the end of the trial when renewed attacks on pay and conditions may be launched. 
 
Victory to the Deliveroo workers!
