Four online food delivery applications in the UK, including Deliveroo and UberEats, will go on strike on Valentine’s Day, February 14th. Approximately 3,000 motorbike and vehicle couriers will stop working from 17:00 to 22:00 local time, demanding higher wages and better working conditions. The strike aims to draw attention to the low wages and poor working conditions faced by couriers delivering food and groceries in the UK. The group “Delivery Job UK” organized the strike and stated on their Instagram account that sacrificing a few hours for their rights is of utmost importance. The group highlighted the need for fair payment and an end to exploitation and risks to their daily lives. In addition to Deliveroo and UberEats, workers from Just Eat and Stuart.com will also participate in the strike. It is noted that these workers usually compete on different mobile applications for delivery orders. Furthermore, Uber and Lyft workers, as well as couriers affiliated with food delivery applications in the US, will also go on a two-hour strike on Wednesday, February 14th. The group “Justice for App Workers” representing over 130,000 workers in the US announced the strike decision.
