Deliveroo couriers in Dublin are protesting over pay and working conditions. The cyclists have switched off the Deliveroo app and are ignoring requests for their services.
The cyclists are seeking an increase in delivery fees and more measures to improve their safety while working. According to Deliveroo, three couriers have suffered violence this week alone.
The couriers will continue with this protest until the end of the night to which they hope will make people realise the importance of their work.
A spokesperson of the company stated that it plans to introduce free safety alarms for all their cyclists to use in emergency situations.
In relation to pay, distance-based fees will be introduced which will pay riders more for medium and long-distance deliveries.
