Sindacato-Networkers is one of the first trade union platforms targeting ICT professionals and employees in the services sector and platform workers. Sindacato-Networkers offers a series of services including individual online advice on work-related problems, such as the help with fiscal matters. On the website, there is a separate section on the platform economy specially designed for riders. It offers legal assistance and assistance related to tax obligations, and above all trade union representation vis-à-vis the different platforms. Another section on labour rights includes a forum offering free counselling. In 2017, Sindacato-Networkers launched a permanent observatory. Through a detailed survey addressed at workers in the platform economy, the observatory collects data and information on platform work in Italy and drafts regular reports. During the COVID-19 crisis, Sindacato-Networkers supported riders through dedicated information and by denouncing situations where they were put at risk.
