A quick update on what’s been happening in the Leeds Deliveroo dispute:
1) The company’s officially written to riders in response to concerns they raised, and the local IWW branch has replied. As the union put it:
“Last week several of our members, also riders at Deliveroo, wrote to the company to express their concerns about mismanagement in Leeds. They had been threatened regarding their right to unionise; their right to take breaks during shifts lasting up to 15 hours; and their right to work for competitors.
1. Formal communication between management and riders, and an end to important information being conveyed through ‘Leeds Roos’ WhatsApp group.
2. The right to take breaks in line with those legally entitled to Workers.
3. A minimum of a 7 days warning period prior to Contract Terminations, allowing riders to rectify any issues with their Service Standards.
