Deliveroo riders in Leeds are celebrating the reinstatement of two riders who were sacked and the reinstatement of the regular hours of five other riders. The latter were victimised after management gained access to a WhatsApp group the riders were using to discuss what to do about their working conditions.

Since the sackings around 50 workers have joined the IWW union and have campaigned not just for their reinstatement, but to end Deliveroo’s exploitative employment practices.
Deliveroo riders and their supporters will be holding another cycle protest on 1 April in conjunction with riders in Brighton, Bristol and Manchester. Meet at 1.30pm at City Square.
