Spain’s labour ministry, trade unions, and employer’s associations have agreed this week in principle to a law improving the rights of food delivery workers employed by global digital platforms like Deliveroo, granting them the status of “permanent staff” instead of self-employed. EURACTIV’s partner EFE reports.
The new legislation aims at improving the working conditions of food delivery workers, which is currently characterised by low salaries, long working hours, and reduced labour rights.
Spain’s labour ministry, trade unions, and employer’s associations have agreed this week in principle to change the relation these workers have with employers like Deliveroo, Glovo, or Uber Eats. The text would concern the delivery sector more generally, covering the delivery of food and other products.
Based on the text sealed by all parties concerned, the future law would first need to overcome the hurdle of the Spanish parliament.
