This is disappointing news for Deliveroo drivers and workers right across the gig economy – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on Deliveroo riders losing their case for collective bargaining in the High Court, said:

“This is disappointing news not just for Deliveroo drivers but for workers right across the gig economy who are denied their full legal rights.

“Labour will give all workers equal rights from day one, including sick pay, paid holiday and protection from unfair dismissal. We will also introduce new laws that will enable the roll out of sectoral collective bargaining.”
