UberEATS: Reinstate Imran! Maintain the campaign for #LivingWage

Deactivated UberEATS

UPDATE 13 SEPT 2016 from IWGB: “The awful situation with UberEats pertains to one of their drivers Imran Siddiqui whose account was deactivated, we believe, as a result of protest. He noticed his account was deactivated around lunchtime Friday 26th August (strike day), and has not yet been able to log back in. We call for his immediate reactivation and reinstatement. We believe this is a suspension or sacking without due process, notice or procedure. It is appalling that UberEats can block someone’s means of income at a flick of a switch!” from IWGB

Many people left fill time employment or other courier work to work for UberEats and their treatment has been shocking.

Please keep signing the petition to reinstate Imran on here.

Lastly, we issue solidarity with all UberEats drivers continuing to disrupt the service on an ad-hoc basis, and call on UberEats to create a better system that allows drivers to work more efficiently, and does not penalise them for having so-called “freedoms”!”

IWGB Couriers And Logistics Branch to UberEats: Reinstate Imran

UBER-EATS: Stop victimising your workers – reinstate Imran Siddiqui now!

LONDON: Uber-Eats is a household name but the exploitative, sweatshop underbelly of the app-based service is now coming to light. Uber-Eats is ruthless, cut-throat, and victimises its workers for speaking out about maltreatment.

Following the recent cuts to promotional offers that attracted many couriers to work for UBER-EATS, drivers are now seeing drastic reductions in their wages, with many averaging below the national minimum wage even before the costs and expenses incurred on the job.

Uber-Eats has blamed the workers themselves for their low-earnings, shirking the idea that rock-bottom rates has anything to do with it. Uber-Eats exploits a legal loophole by employing their couriers as independent contractors so they can dodge minimum wage requirements as well as divest their workers of a string employment protections including protection from unfair dismissal.

Uber-Eats couriers went on all-out strike against poverty-wages on Friday 28 August 2016 and are promising no end to protest actions until Uber-Eats agrees to pay the London Living Wage for the hours they are available for work.

Rather than seeking to resolve the issue, Uber-Eats decided to ‘deactivate’ a.k.a. sack Imran Siddiqui, a lead activist in the Living Wage campaign, without any notification or cause. Imran invested in his motorbike, clothing, mobile data plan and insurance to be able to work for Uber-Eats, only to be dismissed for exercising his right to protest.

This stroke of retaliatory victimisation has backfired and the public is getting behind Imran to demand Uber-Eats formally apologise and immediately reinstate him.

Following that, we are calling for Uber-Eats clean up the mess they have made and pay the London Living Wage to their couriers.

UBER-EATS: REINSTATE IMRAN SIDDIQUI IMMEDIATELY AND PAY THE LONDON LIVING WAGE NOW!
