The digitalization of work changed deeply both the conditions of work and the work tools. The workers involved in the gig economy system are shaped in such different forms; one of the best known is the rider, who delivers goods - mostly food. In the last years, the riders or-ganized themselves in a collective way; that brought to protest movements and important goals. In the following article it will be analyzed how the European riders from Foodora and Deliveroo managed to organize themselves through the union, which was the help coming from the trade unions and the following reactions from the companies, in particular, in Germa-ny. Comparing the international facts, it will be described how difficult is the classification of the rider’s status and how this struggle reflects itself on the union claims.
Keywords: Riders; Deliveroo; Foodora; Gig work; Union claims; Protest movements; Collec-tive organization.
