Los Deliveristas Unidos/Worker’s Justice Project obtained another major victory in New York City, when more than 65,000 app delivery workers will have new labor rights, such as bathroom access, minimum pay and other provisions.
For more than a year, Los Deliveristas Unidos have been on the street organizing and representing the NYC delivery workers across the five boroughs. Finally, after a long hard fight, on September 23, 2021, NYC City Council delivered justice to Deliveristas as they passed a groundbreaking package of legislation in NYC that introduced new labor standards and rights to app delivery workers. By the approval of these bills - the New York City Council set an example for the rest of the state and the country in how to protect, respect, and honor our Essential But Unprotected App Delivery Workers, particularly as we continue the city’s efforts to fight COVID-19 and continue our economic recovery.
The NYC Department of Consumer Affairs & Workers Protection (DCWP) will implement the new law regulating delivery apps and worker protections for app delivery workers. The App Delivery Workers rights will have three phases of implementation, the first phase will start Monday, January 24, 2022.
Phase 1 - Date of Implementation - January 24, 2022
Phase 2 - Implementation Date: April 22, 2022
Phase 3 - Date of Implementation: January 1, 2023
