Imagine putting your health at risk to deliver something as banal as a pizza. As absurd as it sounds, this is the reality faced by many Deliveroo couriers, who force themselves to make deliveries in snow, sleet and rain, just to earn enough to get by. Deliveroo, their employer, take advantage of legal loopholes and is able to deny these workers basic rights such as the right to a guaranteed minimum wage, holiday pay and trade union rights.
But there is no reason why we have to allow this multi-billion pound company to bring Victorian work practices into the 21st century. We're two Deliveroo couriers from Brighton and are riding from Brighton to Paris in 24 hours to raise money to push back against the financial might of this company that can spend millions fighting the IWGB's legal challenge.
I've been with the company for two years now, and in that time I've witnessed first-hand the callous disregard they have for the riders that have made the Deliveroo a success.
Guy, Deliveroo rider, and a fool for agreeing to do this
It's a smooth 130 miles of pain (as in my thighs are on fire, not baguette) and we're gonna be there in time for dinner with the motivation of your donation.
Even John McDonnell agrees and supports our #DeliverJustice campaign:
Info for nerds: Liam's on a Boardman cross and Guy's with his trusty Mango 9-speed road bike, riding Donald Hirsch's route from Dieppe as far as Triel and then straight to the Seine at St Cloud. The Eiffel or bust! Paris by 8pm? No big deal. Family flowers only please.
