For this reason, members of PedidosYa, Glovo or Rappi met at 16 o’clock in the Obelisk and elsewhere in the country to make this demand visible in full quarantine by the coronavirus pandemic. With the motto #22ANoReparto, the measure is backed by Glovers Unidos Argentina, the Distribution Workers Association (ATR), Glovers Unidos España, Glovers Ecuador, Glovers Costa Rica, Glovers Elite of Guatemala, and Dealers of Peru.
«Without response from companies and with a blind eye from governments, the delivery men organized ourselves on a single international front of fighting for our most urgent demands,» the convening organizations said, in a joint statement. The main needs are related to «safety and hygiene elements and 100% increase in the payment per order by the company, without this implying an increase in the customer’s fee».
