Exploitation in one click? Grassroots unions start international delivery service campaign #deliverunion

#deliverunion - riders unite!

Deliveroo and Foodora are two very young start-ups that are rapidly expanding on a global level through their high amount of start-up funds. They spark doubts whether digital capitalism brings an end to work – as some have been claiming. But in fact, the ones who bike the streets for the new internet delivery services have to go many miles through the traffic each day and are regularly put into dangerous situations. Through the #deliverunion campaign, the cyclists are now raising their voices.

FAU-IWA Supports Polish Workers Against Wage Theft

Picket at Duisburg “Pflanzen-Teufel” store

Along the Low Rhine river, in Germany's outer West and adjacent to the Netherlands, thousands of workers from Poland work under precarious conditions in agriculture and gardening. They get cheated on their wage very often, but sometimes they fight back. The Free Worker's Union (German: Freie Arbeiterinnen- und Arbeiter Union, FAU) does actually practice anarchosyndicalist solidarity with them and thereby demonstrates that borders play no role at all. FAU is the German section of the International Workers Association (IWA).
