The takeaway food industry is predicted to reach $3.5 billion in the next five years. Food delivery riders are paid below minimum wage, they have no superannuation, no sick pay, no annual leave, no insurance and no right to challenge being sacked.
We have partnered with the Transport Workers Union and food delivery riders to fight for their rights and we are committed to ensuring that no worker in this country earns below minimum wage and has access to basic work entitlements.
We are also pursuing a legislative agenda which seeks to extend basic work entitlements to riders. We have made some progress with the NSW State Government in securing such commitments. Nevertheless, much work remains to be done.
We urge you to sign our petition and demand that UberEATS, MenuLog and Deliveroo improve the working conditions of their riders immediately.
