MAY DAY 2021
Los Deliveristas Unidos say on their Facebook page: MAY 1 is International Workers’ Day or also known as Labor Day to commemorate the labor movement and the workforce worldwide.
Why do we join the Workers’ March on MAY 1 (2021)?
This past year has been tough for food delivery workers, but also for many other immigrant workers. Many of us had to go out to work risking our lives for our families. This city has benefited from our sweat, work and sacrifice that is not valued or respected. During this pandemic we have been designated as essentials but we are not treated as essentials.
Peaceful demonstration begins at 2 PM on Saturday, May 1, 2021 in Union Square, Manhattan.”
Food Delivery Workers Could Get Relief From Council Bills to Open Restaurant Restrooms and Regulate Apps.
“Burdened food delivery workers could get relief from upcoming City Council bills that aim to open doors to restaurant restrooms and let them set limits on where they’ll deliver.
Councilmembers Carlina Rivera (D-Manhattan), Justin Brannan (D-Brooklyn) and Carlos Menchaca (D-Brooklyn) told THE CITY they plan on introducing a legislative package Thursday, after months-long conversations with Los Deliveristas Unidos, a collective of mostly immigrant food deliverers.
Among the bills, which also include measures to boost wages and ensure tips get to workers, is a highly anticipated proposal by Rivera that would fine restaurants and bars that refuse to allow a delivery worker to use the restroom — charging $50 for the first offense and $100 for every subsequent violation.
“They deserve to be treated with respect, public health crisis or not — and that includes access to basic amenities like a bathroom while on the job, just like every other worker in the city,” Rivera told THE CITY.”
