Speak Up! playlist for 01/05/2021
Jade and Leslie (from Typically Tuesdays) chat with Clayton and Sarah, two of the researchers who worked on a project exploring the working conditions of food couriers of the Metro Vancouver district. Published in October by SFU and with the support of the BC Federation of Labour, the project discusses couriers' work conditions before and since the COVID-19 outbreak, mutual aid and solidarity through the channels of platform media, and the prospects of unionization.
