Si-Cobas (Sindacato Intercategoriale Cobas Lavoratori Autorganizzati, Inter-sectoral self-organised workers’ union)

In March 2016, food delivery riders of Foodora started to self-organise in Turin after learning that colleagues in Milan made higher wages. They gained the support of the rank-and-file independent union Si-Cobas which is active in the logistics sector.

However, although Foodora has made some concessions (for example by increasing the per-piece-delivery-fee) the more substantial demands were unmet.
