Carlos said on Twitter after the event, “Delivery workers are essential workers! They biked from the Upper East Side to City Hall demanding worker protections: designated places to use a restroom and rest while they work, covid19 relief, Food App companies must provide support $ to workers who work each day to feed NYC!”
Workers Justice Project – Proyecto Justicia Laboral said on Facebook, “Today, over 5 hundred food delivery workers took the streets of Manhattan on their bikes to New York City Hall, to demand safety and basic protections as frontline workers.
Today’s demands are very simple and achievable demands;
1) Strong safety protocols for responding to violence and e-bike theft against food delivery workers. It is imperative that the emergency response time decrease, police write incident reports, and perpetrators of these crimes receive legal consequences.
2) Health and Safety: 1) Better safety protections for food delivery workers and support when they get injured 2) Access to bathrooms from restaurants or public facilities.
3) Access lunch-break facilities that will keep food delivery workers warm and protect during the winter season.
Workers Justice Project – Proyecto Justicia Laboral and National Day Laborer Organizing Network, the organizers said on Facebook before the march and rally, “In New York City, food delivery workers are COVID-19 first responders. In time of crisis, delivery workers are essentially being asked to feed New Yorkers without safety and health protections.
As New Yorkers continue to depend on home delivery, food delivery workers are experiencing e-bike theft and unsafe working conditions without protection. It’s not only their e-bike that are stolen, but their ability to work and survive the COVID-19 crisis without a safety net.
#NYCDeliveryWorkers can no longer take more violence and abuse. This Thursday, 200+ food delivery workers will be marching from Upper West Side to City Hall to fight the problem of bike theft and demand safety protection as essential workers.”
