Delivery Drivers

 

Parcel, delivery and taxi drivers fulfill a vital role in today’s click culture. Usually working on their own with a pre-programmed route to ensure efficient and effective delivery of items, goods or persons. Delivery drivers ensure continuity from the point of ordering.

Workers Union Supports Delivery Drivers

 Many delivery drivers are independently hired and self-employed, meaning they are not covered by any union. But that doesn’t mean that The Workers Union aren’t supporting these workers, we are and continue to do so. Supporting the independent contractor/driver who picks up and delivers your packages and Parcells is imperative. Usually, these workers are not protected by a union. And these workers are the ones who deserve protection. This is where The Workers Union steps up.

Union Calls Out Aggression Against Delivery Drivers

 Just because your delivery driver is a fellow union member doesn’t mean that they won’t be victims of aggression. In fact, reports of physical violence against drivers have skyrocketed over the past decade. Most common are cases of assault, battery, and verbal abuse, but there have also been serious reports of fatalities in the line of duty. To protect yourself and your coworkers, check in with your colleagues regularly. If they seem to be in danger, call the police.

Delivery Drivers, Workers Union Supports Delivery Drivers

Workers Union Says Protect Taxi Drivers 

There are a growing number of consumers who are looking for delivery services that are willing to pay the upfront price for a professional delivery/taxi service. As a result, many drivers are starting to use specific apps such as Uber or Just eat. In these apps, drivers advertise their availability to drive you or collect for you around and within a certain radius of their location. These types of apps are being used more by the end consumer for convenience.

Drivers And The Gig Economy 

Many people are asking: Where does this all come together? What does it all mean? The short answer is it all comes back to drivers like you. For the most part, you are independent contractors. You sign a contract that spells out the details of our employment/self-employment. And until that contract is finished, you are workers and ambassadors of the company who hired you. But the gig economy is changing that. In the future, workers in the gig economy may not be contractors at all. They may be employees, workers on a part time or full time basis, or workers who work for an online platform. This is the future of work. It is also an important future for delivery drivers as this union sees it. Being protected in the workplace is now even more important than ever before.

Taxi Drivers

The Workers Union understands the challenges that professional drivers face every day. We know that COVID has had a devastating impact on the taxi industry.

HGV Drivers

The Workers Union is here to support HGV drivers, van drivers and anybody who drives for work. We have the expertise to help you if you’ve experienced bullying, harassment, discrimination, and stress at work.

Food Delivery Drivers

The Workers Union understands the challenges that food delivery drivers face. We know that there’s a gap between employers’ expectations and what can realistically be achieved in a working day.

Parcel Delivery Drivers

The parcel delivery driver is at the heart of this fight. Long hours, tough targets and routine abuse are all very real threats to their health and wellbeing.
