On 17 August 2023 at 3 pm, the trade union Nahrung-Genuss-Gaststätten (NGG) is calling for a strike at Lieferando in Berlin as part of the Strikers’ Day. Lieferando workers from all over Germany are expected to join the demonstration in front of the Lieferando headquarters in Berlin.
“We asked Lieferando in February for bargaining on a collective agreement. Since then, Lieferando has refused to talk to us. We think that they are just waiting until the public attention dies down. So the couriers take the protest to a place where Lieferando can’t miss it: Directly in front of the headquarters in Berlin,” explains Mark Baumeister, head of the hospitality department at the NGG trade union.
Since 2016 the couriers fight for better working conditions, they demand at least guaranteed 15 €/h, bonus für evening shifts as well as on Sunday and public holiday and 0,50 €/km (net) allowances for drivers and more.
„Liefern am Limit“ consists of hundreds of drivers and HUB workers at Lieferando, who have joined forces in the trade union NGG.
We want more money and better working conditions for all employees at Lieferando. We work 365 days a year regardless of the wind or weather conditions, we are always under pressure. Our jobs on the streets are dangerous and hard. But we love our jobs and we deserve respect!
