The riders insist on remaining autonomous and propose to Díaz alternatives to ‘forced labor’ (Los riders insisten en seguir siendo autónomos y plantean a Díaz alternativas a la ‘laboralización forzosa’)

On 10 February 2021, the riders in Spain have insisted on remaining self-employed to decide ‘when to work, where and how to do it’ and whether they work with one or several platforms. The Autonomous Riders Association (AAR), the Professional Association of Autonomous Riders (APRA) and the Spanish Association of Messenger Riders (AsoRiders) have issued a joint statement in which they denounced that the law on digital platforms, known as the 'Rider Law', actually leads this group to more precariousness and unemployment.
