Deliveroo riders are on strike
In a number of neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, it’s currently not possible to order meals from Deliveroo. The website indicates this is because it’s busy, but deliverers have announced they are on strike. Trade union FNV says Deliveroo is also experiencing problems in Haarlem and Utrecht.
Couriers have organised in the Riders Union to protest the introduction of piecework. Deliveroo wants to terminate its labour contracts with couriers and have them work as independent contractors. Members of Parliament have expressed sharp criticism of Deliveroo’s treatment of its couriers. Last year, couriers protested at the Amsterdam office of Deliveroo.
