Deliveroo strike Spain
In July 2017, there was a strike of hundreds of Deliveroo riders in Spain, halting work for a few hours to take part in protests in Madrid and Barcelona. They asked for a decent salary (at least two deliveries per hour to reduce salary uncertainty) and a minimum working time of 20 hours per week. Traditional trade unions, such as the Workers Commission ( Confederación sindicale Comisiones Obreras, CCOO) and the Workers General Union ( Unión General de Trabajadores, UGT), supported their demands, arguing that this kind of digital platform is deliberately evading current labour legislation and may bring about more labour precariousness.
