France - Deliveroo gig riders strike over pay - August 31, 2017

Riders working for the food delivery company Deliveroo have staged protests in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and Nantes to complain about changes to their pay. Deliveroo employs all riders as independent contractors, rather than as employees, meaning that they do not have rights such as the minimum wage or paid holidays. The company switched all its riders from 27 August 2017 to the same contract in which they are paid per delivery (between 5.0-5.75 euro) rather than an hourly rate.
