Welfare / Representative Riders in Ulhasnagar, along with Kalyan Dombivali of Zomato Company, a well-known food delivery service, have started a strike. Hundreds of riders have joined the agitation and the agitation will continue till the demands from the company are met.
In the last 2 years and especially during the lockdown, these Zomato Riders have given a lot of support to the people who are stuck at home. Many customers preferred this option during the lockdown period as they were getting direct home delivery of their favorite and desired food. However, for the last 2 days, many Zomato riders from Ulhasnagar, including Kalyan-Dombivali, have started a work stoppage agitation for their various demands.
Currently, the price of petrol has skyrocketed and the biggest hit has been on the income of these riders. There is a big difference between the commission paid by the company for the delivery of each order and the cost of delivering that order. This has affected our commissions from the company and the riders have raised the question of how to run the house in the meager income we get.
So for various demands like weekly facility provided by the company, company should plan while placing long distance orders at night, reduce long distance orders, inter-city orders should be given to local riders only, we do not get any support from team leader, minimum guarantee pay from company should be resumed. These riders have started a movement.
Not only do we want to make such a movement, but the company also urges the riders to accept our demands as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, representatives of the company met the Zomato riders last evening and wrote down their demands. Those demands will now be conveyed to the seniors and a decision will be taken only after that.
