Deliveroo and Foodora are two very young start-ups that are rapidly expanding on a global level through their high amount of start-up funds. They spark doubts whether digital capitalism brings an end to work – as some have been claiming. But in fact, the ones who bike the streets for the new internet delivery services have to go many miles through the traffic each day and are regularly put into dangerous situations. Through the #deliverunion campaign, the cyclists are now raising their voices.

„Our working conditions are getting worse and worse and we’ve had enough! Now we’re taking matters into our own hands! The „gig economy“ is growing, and it creates more and more precarious jobs. It’s time to fight for our rights as workers, for our job and for yours! Let’s stand together in solidarity!
Riders in similar conditions are already organising and winning gains across Europe. If they can do it, we can do it too! Let’s be heard and demand the very best we can get! Come join us in Zukunft am Ostkreuz on April the 25th at 20:00 as we launch our campaign to get what we deserve!
The FAU Berlin is an independent grassroots self-organised trade union helping workers organise to fight for everything they can get. Organise now so you can too!“
