Deliveroo and UberEATS - Global Disconnections
I've written a piece for an Italian website Global Disconnections on Deliveroo and UberEATS, you can read the full article here.
The action by these precarious workers has shown that it is indeed possible to organise and fight back in the gig economy. In the UK many are closely following the actions at Deliveroo and UberEATS, particularly as workers move from a defensive struggle into an offensive campaign. The temporary defeat of Deliveroo is the first sign of these workers exercising their power; the success in winning better pay and conditions could have widespread ramifications. Although the campaigns are still in their early stages, there are important lessons to be learned for what strike action looks like today, and can also point us in the direction of how future struggles could be organised.
