NUPGE joins CUPW in calling on Foodora and the federal government to ensure that workers and food couriers be protected.
The outcome of the cases could have serious ramifications for gig economy workers.
"Gig economy workers are highly vulnerable to exploitation and need representation. Receiving no pay if sick, no protection if injured, and no respect for workers' rights is not acceptable. Foodora workers have chosen to organize and registered to vote to join a union. The Ontario Labour Relations Board should respect the rights of these workers and allow the votes to be counted." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President
