A newly released study on the current situation of on-demand workers for platforms such as Uber or Deliveroo in Europe, commissioned by the Left group in the European Parliament. The study includes an analysis of the various strategies used to combat the social model imposed on platform workers, both by platform workers and trade unions.
The study highlights the action being taken on a local, national and European level to support the legal and political struggles of platform workers. It shows that, in spite of organisational difficulties due to the imposed social model, platform workers and their representatives are building new forms of social protest.
