Riders’ Union Bologna, Deliverance Project, Strike Raiders

In Italy, the Riders’ Union Bologna, Deliverance Project and Strike Raiders are active in several Italian cities. They organise workers of Deliveroo, Glovo and others to negotiate better working conditions. For example, in July 2018, riders for Glovo blocked the entrance to a fast food restaurant to protest the low pay and to be able to hand in a list of demands to the company. Furthermore, in August 2018, these organisations were invited to participate in the second national round table discussion convened by the Minister of Labour and Economic Development, for which they presented a letter with requested improvements of working conditions as well as arguing for legislative intervention and reforms that would provide better protections for food delivery riders.
