October 25-26 Deliverunion is travelling to Brussels to meet other riders from around Europe for the biggest international meeting of food delivery couriers ever!
Since 2016 a wave of rider strikes and protests has spread through Europe. Hundreds of couriers have stood up to the exploitative practices of Deliveroo, UberEats, Foodora and the like, demanding better wages and protections at work.
This week riders from Italy, Spain, France, UK, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Austria and Belgium will meet in Brussels to share experiences and ideas on organising for better working conditions.
This is an exciting chance to learn from the successes and failures from each country, and to connect and strengthen our common campaigns through a European wide courier network against poverty pay and precarious work in the gig economy.
