The Fairwork UK team is launching their second investigation of the working conditions in Britain’s platform economy
Join us for the report launch webinar on 8 June at 11:00 (BST). Register below and receive early access to the report.
The ‘Fairwork UK Ratings 2022: Collective Worker Power’ report evaluates 15 of the United Kingdom’s largest digital labour platforms – Amazon Flex, Bolt, Deliveroo, Getir, Gorillas, Helpling, Just Eat, Ola, Pedal Me, Care.com, Stuart, Taskrabbit, Uber, Uber Eats and Yoopies – against five principles of fair work (fair pay, fair conditions, fair contracts, fair management, and fair representation), giving each platform a score from 0 to 10.
The Fairwork UK team will give a brief presentation with key findings from the report. This will be followed by a discussion with guest panellists Parirs Dixon (Chair of the Sheffield Couriers & Logistics Branch, IWGB), Miranda Hall (Independent Researcher), and Damian Collins MP (Conservative Party).
There will also be an open Q&A session for all attendees to engage in the discussion. Note that the event will be held online via Zoom.
