CUPW Statement: Foodora Unionization Vote

Share This

Tuesday August 13 2019

For Immediate Release

Over the last several months, Foodora couriers in Toronto and Mississauga have come together to fight for respect, better working conditions and fair compensation through a push for union certification with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW). 

We are grateful for the support of all our allies and know how much potential change is riding on this vote.

The results will not be available until the Ontario Labour Relations Board has resolved the contested issues raised by both Foodora and CUPW.

“Legally, Foodora can fight us and drag this out, but the reality is undeniable: we’re united and we’re still growing. There’s no question of whether our union is real. The only question is: what will it take to get Foodora to bargain with us collectively? A lot of eyes are on Foodora right now, and they’d be better off to recognize us and come to the negotiating table so we can work together to solve our issues” – Alexander Kurth, Foodora courier and union organizer.
