TWU and Menulog sign principles of agreement to ensure safety and fairness for gig workers

Gig workers are coming together and making huge steps towards a fairer and safer transport industry as the TWU signs a charter of principles with Menulog with an exclusive agreement to continue to work for sustainable conditions for food delivery riders.

The principles of agreement are a significant breakthrough in offering all on-demand couriers appropriate benefits and protections, combined with choice and flexibility, regardless of whether they are engaged as contractors or employees.

Thanks to the relentless campaigning conducted by gig workers, the agreement also includes Menulog supporting the Federal Government to give the Fair Work Commission the capacity to set minimum, and transparent enforceable rights and standards for all on-demand delivery couriers who are not engaged as employees.

This is a powerful endorsement for Federal Parliament to pass this reform. – Michael Kaine, TWU National Secretary “
