No De­liv­eroo union

South Wales Evening Post - - SMARTER FOR 10 -

DE­LIV­EROO rid­ers do not have the right to col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing, the High Court has ruled in the lat­est case in­volv­ing the “gig econ­omy”.

The In­de­pen­dent Work­ers Union of Great Bri­tain at­tempted to over­turn a rul­ing which found that rid­ers are not en­ti­tled to col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing rights be­cause they are “self-em­ployed”.

At the High Court yes­ter­day, Mr Jus­tice Sup­per­stone dis­missed the union’s claim that the de­ci­sion was a breach of rid­ers’ hu­man rights.
