An Indian online food ordering and delivery platform, Swiggy delivery partners in Chennai are on strike demanding the withdrawal of a new pay structure introduced by the company.
As per media reports, the revisions are as follows:
- The delivery executives have to complete 30 order deliveries daily. This summarizes the delivery executives’ entire day. As this can only be possible if they put in at least 17 hours of work.
- According to the earlier pay structure, the employees have to work for 12 hours daily and also received daily and weekly incentives.
- It is reported that earlier, part-time delivery personnel received about Rs 250 plus Rs 125 as an incentive daily, while the full-time agents earned Rs 475 plus Rs 250 as an incentive, which they were able to easily achieve in half the number of deliveries that the new system demands.
- With the new regulations in place, delivery executives are struggling to meet the cost of fuel and fulfill their domestic needs.
