Efood delivery workers on 24h strike _despite company promising contracts



The online app for food delivery efood announced on Thursday that it will turn all working contracts into ‘unlimited’ ones thus recognizing the time they worked in the past and will hire 2,016 people.


The company proceeds in changing the working status of delivery workers after a huge outcry on social media, customers backlash and thousands of negative comments that caused its rating in play stores to plunge


A week ago, the online food platform efood had decided to turn the contract-based workers into freelancers.


On Wednesday, delivery workers protested with a work stoppage and a motor-march outside the Labor Ministry in Athens, while they declared a 24-hour strike for today, Friday.
