UoL IWGB’s Henry Chango Lopez addressing the Deliveroo strikers!

You might have seen in the Guardian and elsewhere that Deliveroo drivers have called a strike over proposed changes to their contracts, pay and conditions.

Currently drivers earn £7/hour + £1/delivery. Deliveroo want to ditch the hourly rate, and move to a piece rate system, where drivers would only earn £3.75/delivery.

Many riders are now joining the IWGB, and our Couriers branch has been helping conduct negotiations with management (see more details here – https://iwgbclb.wordpress.com/2016/08/14/deliveroo-strike-update-3/ – or on Twitter (https://twitter.com/IWGB_CLB)).

The riders are holding daily pickets from 5 until 7 every day on Torrington Place (just up by Waterstones) and so it would be great if people could come along and show their support!
