In August 2016, the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) assisted a group of Deliveroo riders during their six days of strike action and protests against changes to pay (announced reduction of the hourly pay during quieter periods for some of the riders) in the United Kingdom. The dispute, which was also supported by the government, was resolved largely in the workers’ favour.
Similar strike action took place in early 2019, demanding, amongst others, a minimum pay for each delivery, paid waiting times and a minimum notice period for contract termination(see further information).
