Deliveroo riders stage ride-along strike in London
Guardian, 07 Apr 2021
Deliveroo workers rode through the streets of London on Wednesday afternoon in a protest against their treatment by the takeaway delivery platform. The riders took their demands for worker's right and a living wage to Deliveroo's London HQ, where they staged a demonstration organised by the Independent Workers of Great Britain union.

In March, a survey of more than 300 couriers found they could earn as little as £2 an hour. After the news broke, several institutional investors declined to get involved in Deliveroo’s initial public offering, with some citing the firm’s record on workers’ rights as a significant concern. Deliveroo denied that it treated workers poorly. It said a survey it ran on Tuesday showed that 89% of 8,500 riders surveyed said they were 'satisfied or very satisfied' with the company and flexibility was their priority.
