Il sindaco di Bologna lancia un’iniziativa per boicottare le piattaforme di cibo a domicilio

A Bologna, le aziende Sgam e MyMenu hanno firmato la prima ‘Carta dei diritti fondamentali dei lavoratori digitali in città’. Sgam e MyMenu impiegano circa 140 fattorini dei 500 che consegnano i pasti a domicilio a Bologna.

Tuttavia, gli altri colossi del settore delle consegne a domicilio di cibo pronto non hanno partecipato: da Deliveroo a Foodora, da Glovo a JustEat.

Il sindaco della città ha lanciato un appello a tutti i consumatori: “Ora avete la possibilità di ordinare la pizza da chi non sfrutta.” Un invito a boicottare chi non ha firmato.

L’amministrazione comunale pubblicherà la lista di chi non rispetta i diritti dei lavoratori in bicicletta, come l’equo compenso orario, il diritto di non consegnare su bicicletta nel caso di cattivo tempo e l’obbligo di assicurazione.

The mayor of Bologna launches an initiative to boycott food delivery apps

In Bologna, the companies Sgam and MyMenu have signed the first “Charter of fundamental rights of digital city workers”. Sgam and MyMenu employ about 140 delivery people out of the 500 who home-deliver meals in Bologna.

However, the other big players in the industry of cooked food home delivery did not participate: from Deliveroo to Foodora, and from Glovo to JustEat.

The city mayor called on every consumer: “Now you have the chance to order your pizza from those who don’t exploit people.” An invitation to boycott those who didn’t sign.

The city government will post a list of those who don’t respect the rights of the bike workers, such as a fair hourly wage, the right not to deliver by bicycle in case of bad weather and the obligation to have insurance.

Meet your coach

As a language learner, I was raised speaking only Italian, but now I speak nine foreign languages.

As a teacher, I’ve taught Italian to adults in schools and universities.

I’ve lectured in polyglot clubs and coached students on their way to fluency.

I’m eager to share my secrets with you.
