Italian trade union support for platform workers

The Italian Workers’ Union in the Tourism, Trade and Service Sectors (Unione Italiana Lavoratori Turismo Commercio e Servizi, UILTuCS) and the Italian Workers’ Federation for Trade, Hotel, Canteen and Service Sectors (Federazione Italiana Lavoratori Commercio, Albergo, Mensa e Servizi, Filcams) are promoting initiatives aimed at raising awareness about working conditions in platform work. They also actively take part in negotiations for platform workers, as was for example the case in late 2018 when food delivery companies Foodora and Glovo merged and the future of their delivery workers was unclear (see more information).
