SRDP – Union of Digital Platform Workers

Trg Kralja Petra Krešimira IV 2, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Creation date:
September 2021
Type of initiative:
Trade union:
The Digital Platform Workers Trade Union (SRDP in Croatian) was set up in September 2021 with SSSH’s help. The SRDP provides support to workers in platforms by organising training events, encouraging the exchange of best practices and fostering a political discussion on the wider aspects of work in platform companies. In Autumn 2021, the SRDP organised a successful boycott of Uber after the company had a delay in paying its drivers. The action led to immediate payment, but also allowed SRDP to gain visibility and launch dialogue with other platforms. Although still in the early stages of organising, the SRDP can already count on a well-organised group of Glovo drivers. It has initiated dialogue with Glovo and brought to the table several topics and demands. Dialogue with other platforms is still in less advanced stages, but also making progress. SRDP is affiliated to SSSH.
