GoOpti worker protest

In 2014 in Slovenia, drivers affiliated with GoOpti, a platform matching demand and supply for transport, posted leaflets on vans to protest against working conditions. Together with the trade union ZSSS ( Zveza svobodnih sindikatov Slovenije, Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia) they reported violations of drivers’ rights to the labour inspectorate which sanctioned the platform on the ground of misclassification of the employment status (self-employed rather than employees). As a result, in 2015 the platform adopted a new business model. Since then, they subcontract the tasks to transport companies rather than themselves employing drivers.
