DELIVEROO and Uber Eats couriers will leave couples hungry as they strike on Valentine’s Day.
As many as 3,000 riders and drivers will take action to demand better pay and improved working conditions.
Strike organisers are hoping to bump up pay and increase working conditions for riders and drivers of Deliveroo and other food delivery servicesReuters
Just Eat and Stuart.com will also be affected as couriers who work across the platforms refuse to work from 5pm to 10pm.
Organiser Delivery Job UK said: “Sacrificing a few hours for our rights is essential, instead of continuing to work incessantly for insufficient wages.
“Our request is simple: we want fair compensation.
“We are tired of being exploited and risking our lives every day… It’s time for our voices to be heard.”
For Deliveroo, delivery pay ranges from £2.80 to £3.15.
The strike organisers want it increased to a minimum of £5.
Deliveroo said riders got at least the national living wage although most earned far more.
Uber Eats said: “We know the vast majority of couriers are satisfied.
“We regularly engage with couriers to look at how we can improve their experience.”
