Nottingham Deliveroo riders strike against unfair algorithm
On 12 July, Nottingham Deliveroo riders stood together to shut down the Deliveroo Editions kitchen.
The strikers were supported by the Nottingham and Mansfield Trade Union Council, the Socialist Party and others.
Orders had been backing up because riders were not going to the kitchen. A great cheer went up when it was announced.
One rider, Greg said: "The algorithm is pushing out cyclists and favouring motors - pushing us to the back of the queue and damaging the environment."
Another striker said: "Last week I was down to just one hour and nothing this week. If it wasn't for tax credits I'd be fucked... I've got a family to feed." The partner of a picket told us: "I don't know what our family would do if I didn't have a full-time job."
One issue discussed was how city centre deliveries are more suitable to cyclists because of traffic and parking. It was also raised by one rider that after cyclists, they would go for the scooters.
