UAE: Deliveroo services pause over work-related issues
Several residents, including restaurateurs, took to social media to express their ire over ‘delays’ as delivery giant Deliveroo faced some work-related issues.
Social media posts by riders suggested that hundreds of them resented alleged pay cuts and refused to cooperate until they were given ‘better work conditions’. The firm reportedly cut order rates and increased the working hours of their drivers after the fuel price hikes.
In a late-evening e-mail to its restaurant partners, Deliveroo said: “ We are currently facing an issue with our riders, where riders are striking and refusing to attend their shifts and deliver orders. Rest assured our team is working closely to resolve this issue as quickly as possible while continuing to protect Deliveroo rider earnings.”
