No Love for Deliveroo!! Manchester’s Deliveroo couriers to strike against low pay and insecurity!

On Thursday 14th February between 11am and 3pm, Deliveroo couriers in Manchester will be striking in protest of the company’s recent cuts to pay and the poor working conditions they endure. Riders around the UK have seen their pay cut in recent months and are increasingly being forced to deliver outside of zones for even less money. The demands of the Manchester couriers include:

  •            A minimum of £5 a delivery and £8 for a double order.
  •            £10 an hour for waiting time for orders.
  •            A minimum of £1 for every additional mile travelled.
  •            No deliveries outside of the zone.
  •            Allow motorbike riders equal access to orders as cyclists.
