Collective agreement covers Deliveroo riders

Following a series of appeals put forward by the trade union federation FNV (Federatie Nederlands Vakbeweging) against Deliveroo and similar platforms, the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ruled that Deliveroo workers are covered by the collective labour agreement for the transport of goods. The delivery workers are thus entitled to a fixed hourly wage, allowances and holiday pay, and their wages have to be paid during waiting time, illness and days off. The ruling applies retroactively to all deliverers who work and have worked for Deliveroo, and workers have the chance to report to FNV to jointly claim an employment contract that includes a collective labour agreement wage.
