Delivery riders hold protest vs Grab

MANILA, Philippines — Hundreds of delivery riders on Sunday protested along Tomas Morato in Quezon City over the alleged unfair labor practices of ride-hailing company Grab.

Members of the National Union of Food Delivery Riders opposed the implementation of Grab’s new fare matrix, saying it would greatly reduce their “already meager earnings.”

According to one of the protesters, the reduction on their pay would go to the maintenance of the Grab platform.

The delivery riders contradicted the claim of Grab that it is facing financial difficulties, noting that it can afford to get the services of “high-caliber” endorsers.

They added that the planned fare matrix would cut the riders’ limited earnings.

The riders also accused Grab of inadequacy in their health insurance, saying what the company offered was only medical reimbursement.

The protesters added that Grab never consulted them on the new policies made on the platform.
