Hundreds of home delivery workers, known as 'motoboys', protested against the precariousness of their jobs and to demand better conditions in Sao Paulo on Tuesday.
The march, which took place during a strike called by the Sindimoto union and the General Workers' Union (UGT), included delivery workers from various apps such as Uber Eats, iFood and Rappi.
«We are protesting what we have protested before, [demanding] an increase in salary, in the value of the trip [made during the delivery], help to [protect ourselves from] the COVID-19, life insurance and an end to the blockade,» explained Gerson Silva, one of the delivery workers who participated in the march.
Franklin, another demonstrator, stated that the motoboys are not appreciated by the population, which he believes should not be the case, as they «are part of the daily life of Brazilians.”
According to reports, a meeting will take place between the distributors and the companies at the Regional Labor Court (TRT) in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.
