The Couriers Association is a network of platform workers (delivery workers and drivers) in Lithuania. It is organised by couriers and seeks to serve as representation of platform workers’ interests. The association’s goals are to help enforcing the rightful guarantees and stable incomes for the people working in the sector; and to provide legal and material aid for its members. It pursues these goals by launching petitions and inquiries, organising strikes and protests, and by initiating legal procedures and processes in favour of institutionalising safety provisions and decent working conditions for platform workers. The organisation is part of the May 1st Labor Union (G1PS), which provides legal and financial aid and helps with organizational questions.
