The initiative was created by the Spanish trade union Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT), with the aim to support and organise workers in the platform economy. It aims to get more platform workers in standard employment contracts, arguing that 'autonomous' work relationships are highly risky for the employee in terms of social security and health insurance. More broadly, the campaign aims to stimulate debate around the rights of platform workers and leverage the organisational resources of the UGT to provide platform workers information and advice on their rights.
