Delivery app drivers will comply with national strike demanding fairer rates

Next Monday, March 11, the delivery app drivers will carry out a national strike to demand an end to the precarious and abusive conditions they suffer in their activities.

Through the Union of Digital Platform Workers (Sintrapladi) and with the support of the General Confederation of Workers of Peru (CGTP), They report that the Uber, Rappi, PedidosYa and InDrive apps—the dominant ones in the market—barely give them S/0.80 per kilometer traveled and pass on the cost of canceled orders, in addition to not having medical insurance.

What do delivery drivers ask for from delivery apps?

Paul Véliz, representative of Sintrapladi, told La República that they do not receive fair rates, given that for more than 4 km traveled the apps give them S/2.80 per order.

The union seeks to establish a dialogue table, but there have been no approaches from the companies in question.

“These companies (Uber, Rappi, PedidosYa, InDrive) take advantage of calling us simple collaborators. We are independent. We want to be autonomous, but for our rights to be respected. We are blocked if we do not want to place an order late at night to a dangerous area. I have to take a poorly paid order and to a dangerous area. We must be free to choose,” he commented.

A recent study by Fairwork in Peru revealed that 145,000 mobile app workers earn below the RMV (S/1,025) despite working more than 50 hours a week and, as reported The Republic9 out of 10 delivery drivers are unprotected by delivery companies.
