The Drop: London Couriers Bulletin

Since September 2018, the London Branch of the IWW union has been organising with workers in the food delivery sector, most of whom work for Deliveroo and UberEats. Besides aiding individual members and helping to organise strikes, we have begun a monthly newsletter which reports on local as well as international conditions and struggles. We hope this bulletin can help London couriers develop their struggle against the companies and the state, as well as enable our union to maintain local contact with workers in various areas of our city.

Foodora and Deliveroo Riders protest in Berlin

Foodora and Deliveroo Riders protest in Berlin

On January 24 2018, Foodora and Deliveroo riders in Berlin have protested against their precarious working conditions. They have to pay for most of the bike repair costs themselves. This leads to many having to ride with bicycles that are not safe, because they can not afford the repair costs.

"Major organising efforts are just started by one or two riders deciding they won’t take this shit any more."

Rebel Roo (issue 7, May 2017)

"Average wages among Deliveroo riders are way up on what they were in January, and no one has faced any victimisation for organising. However, we know that unless we keep building our organisation and putting pressure on Deliveroo, this could all change. The bosses are itching for an opportunity to fuck us over again."
