Food delivery riders are coming together and taking a stand against unfair pay and unsafe conditions.









ON-DEMAND ECONOMY: THE NEED FOR CHANGE
 
The takeaway food industry is predicted to reach $3.5billion in the next five years. Yet delivery riders are struggling on low wages, no superannuation, no sick pay, no annual leave, no insurance and no right to challenge being sacked. As this industry booms, riders working for Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Foodora must be treated fairly with safety as a priority.
 
Delivery riders and the TWU are fighting for rights in the on-demand economy. Whether a delivery rider or not, you can join our campaign:

“My mum was so worried about my safety she bought me ambulance cover for Christmas. I couldn't afford my own,” says Alison, former Deliveroo rider.
 
The on-demand economy is sold as an innovative, flexible work practice, but in fact its work practices date back to a by-gone era. Workers in Australia have for centuries fought hard to win rights and protections which are now being eroded by multinational companies gaming the system. Join our campaign today to ensure on-demand workers are treated fairly.
