Deliveroo delivery men are rebelling. On Wednesday night, many of them called on consumers to boycott the platform for their meal. Reason for their dissatisfaction? A new fee schedule that leads, according to them, a decrease in their remuneration.
"The algorithm has decided to pay us less for the shorter races by telling us that the longest races would be favored, except that the long races also see their prices drop", immediately evacuated to the microphone of Europe 1 Jérôme Pimot, a courier at Bicycleo, former bicycle delivery man at Deliveroo and co-founder of Clap (Collective of Parisian autonomous deliverers, dedicated to defending the rights and working conditions of "autoentrepreneurs" deliverymen.
"All deliverers" affected
"Until now, changes in pricing were not general," he continues on our antenna at the microphone of François Clauss. "They have eliminated the minimums for everyone, so all the deliverers are impacted." Which explains the mobilization of Wednesday, while deliverers had already gathered Saturday in Paris." We would like a social dialogue with trusted intermediaries, senators or deputies "
The strike of these delivery men is also a response to Deliveroo's contemptuous attitude. "The social dialogue has always been very one-sided," says Jerome Pimot. "When there was, it was mainly to listen to them to repeat the elements of language in front of dependent couriers.We would like a social dialogue with trusted intermediaries, senators or deputies."
The former deliverer of Deliveroo evokes personalities like "Aurélien Taché [who has tabled several amendments on the issue under the mobility guidelines law, Ed] or Olivier Jacquin, socialist senator, real experts" for lead this mediation. The goal: "Let Deliveroo stop praising us with their elements of language that we had the proof, on the ground, that they were fake."
