(en) deliverunion.fau: Conciliation hearings against Deliveroo: Fighting back pays off (de) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 12 Dec 2019 08:31:21 +0200


The last two of our four members' conciliation hearings against Deliveroo took place today. The result: fighting back against unfair working conditions pays off - whether in the workplaces, the streets or in the courts. ---- Deliveroo had previously offered workers a so-called "goodwill payment" in August after making the entire workforce redundant with almost no notice. The hearings ended in three settlements, where each of the three workers received up to seven times the payment originally offered by the company. However, the company has the right to withdraw these offers within two weeks. ---- The fourth rider rejected the settlement of over € 4,000, as this was far below what he considers a reasonable severance payment, having faced multiple hardships arising from his employment conditions. We'll continue to fight for his right to be recognised as a fully employed worker and not a self-employed contractor. Next, he will have his first court case to push for his employee status to be recognised by the court. If the case is won, it could have a positive effect for other "self-employed" workers nationwide.

Outside the court, the FAU held a rally in solidarity with the riders. Here's the speech from Akseli, an ex-Deliveroo-rider.
