Nearly 20 delivery people marched late Saturday afternoon in Villeurbanne to ask for an improvement in working conditions.
It was the fifth mobilization in six weeks for delivery people in Lyon. It was at 6.30 p.m. that the demonstrators from Uber and Deliveroo gathered in front of the Mc Donald’s de Charpennes in Villeurbanne. They demanded better working conditions, a reassessment of wages and denounce the indifference of platforms and employers.
“The government is moving forward on the subject and claims to open the work of” platform workers’ rights “even as our employers, the platforms, continue to turn a deaf ear”, explained the union in our columns previously.
Progress reports that at 7 p.m., the police dispersed the protesters who asked the fast food chain to cut its shelves for the evening. The delivery men then headed for Cours Vitton to ask the few restaurant chains to turn off their shelves.
