From IWGB

They have killed our rights, but together, we are going to bring them back from the dead. On the eve of Halloween, The IWGB and other precarious workers will take to the streets of London to demand an end to the assault on their employment rights by ogre bosses and a zombie government.

On the day, the IWGB will be facing Uber at the Court of Appeal as part of the ongoing battle over workers’ rights. A victory would put us one step closer to ending the attack on our rights that so-called “gig economy” bosses are conducting with near impunity.

This is not just about Uber drivers, but about all of us that are being forced into increasingly more precarious forms of work. That’s why all precarious workers, from Deliveroo couriers to outsourced workers, will be marching together demanding an end to precarious work and a revival of the basic employment rights that we are being denied.

The march will start at Transport for London, go past the Royal Courts of Justice and end at the University of London, where workers are fighting to end outsourcing.

We hear Uber will be dressing up as an ethical employer…what will you come as?
