Winning At Work: ‘Riding For Deliveroo’ & Young Organiser Panel

26th October 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for an afternoon of learning from current workplace struggles across the UK and what we need to do to start winning again.

‘𝗥𝗶𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗗𝗲𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗼𝗼’ 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝗟𝗮𝘂𝗻𝗰𝗵

Union organiser Callum Cant took a job with Deliveroo to organise gig economy workers in one of the most precarious, and often dangerous, sections of the economy in the UK. As part of his book launch, Callum will be giving us a run down on what tactics riders use to organise, how they can win and what this means for workers in other sectors. His book ‘Riding for Deliveroo’ is described as

“𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵 𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘢 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴 𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘴. 𝘐𝘵𝘴 𝘮𝘪𝘹𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵-𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘢𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘯𝘢𝘭𝘺𝘴𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮 𝘤𝘢𝘱𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘮”
