Raising money for this tomorrow evening if anyone is interested. Should be an interesting discussion.
Some good news from the courts, not directly related to the couriers' campaign but should have good implications for other contracts described as 'self-employed': The court found that Uber drivers should be classified as employees workers, and should get the living* wage (and perhaps other benefits like sick pay and holiday?). https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/oct/28/uber-uk-tribunal-self-employed-status
(I'm not connected to the courier's branch but I'm in IWGB in the University of London branch btw)
*the minimum wage, really
They found them to be 'workers' rather than employees. Which is definitely better with minimum wage/holiday/sick pay, but doesn't protect from unfair dismissal
Corrected. It's pleasing to use the strike tag.
The decline in worker's rights in such a blatant manner as I've seen over the last twenty years, is quite Victorian.
A challenge, such as this, to the way the construction industry is run and the Inland Revenue's role in it, is long overdue.
