Food delivery apps have become a staple in the gig economy worldwide over the last few years. That’s why it’s no surprise that, as unions continue their attempt to infiltrate the gig economy and fast food workers, their approach includes companies like Uber Eats and Foodora.
In the last month, both companies have formed the first unions representing food delivery workers — Uber Eats in Japan and Foodora in Norway. Both of these organizations operate on a global scale.
USMCA (the proposed trade agreement between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada) is supposedly ready to go as far as Mexico and Canada are concerned.
After U.S. lawmakers visited Mexico earlier this month to touch base on labor reforms pertaining to the agreement, Mexican President, Andrew Manuel Lopez Obrador, delivered a letter to the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee — essentially supporting the agreement and encouraging Speaker Nancy Pelosi to put it up for a vote as soon as possible. Pelosi says she wants “more environmental protections, prescription drug protections, and worker rights protections” before she agrees to a vote.
