Resisting the Gig-Economy

By Anna Baum | OpenDemocracy |
Artikel über die Verhältnisse in der Plattform-Ökonomie, Ansätze zur gewerkschaftlichen Organisation und dem Potenzial genossenschaftlicher Alternativen.

Aus dem Artikel:

"The FAU provided a horizontal and open space for the Deliverunion campaign to flourish, mobilising over 100 riders to direct action and winning a pay bonus per km. With no paid staff or organisers, support came from members from other sections, such as primary school teachers and carers, a reminder that unions don’t act or make decisions in themselves but that workers act in their name and with their resources."
