Parcel Delivery Drivers

In the last 25 years, the world has become a smaller place. It is now the work of seconds to sit at home and order a product from the other side of the planet. But this is not just a revolution in communications tech, it’s also a cultural revolution driven by e-tailers and app platform employers as they fight to keep up with changing consumer expectations.

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. Pensions, holiday pay and overtime are not a given. It’s a tough job that’s set to become tougher as companies downsize services in the wake of economic uncertainty.

How Much Do Parcel Delivery Drivers Get Paid?

Not enough. A fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work is very much an issue in the sector – particularly in environments where workers are forced to drive dangerously and park illegally just to hit their delivery targets.

In this context it is not surprising that many delivery drivers face mental health struggles and burnout. Fortunately, the Workers Union is here to help. We understand that one-size-fits-all solutions are not always the right solutions.
