The Fairwork Ecuador 2021 report evaluates the working conditions in six of the most prominent platforms in the country – Uber, Cabify, Glovo, Rappi, Encargos y Envios, and Ocre – against our five global principles of fair work.
Overall, our ratings reflect that there is much to be done to ensure fairness in Ecuador’s emerging platform economy. In a context of insufficient local regulation, coordinated international action and incentives are needed to offset the unbalanced power of transnational platforms.
Fairwork scores provide an independent assessment of platforms. By raising awareness of the conditions of gig workers in Ecuador, and across Latin America, Fairwork aims to assist workers, consumers and regulators in making platforms accountable for their practices.
