Delivery service – Gorillas raises hourly wages for drivers – Economy

The food delivery service Gorillas wants to raise the hourly wage for its drivers from the current 10.50 euros to 12 euros from January even before a statutory regulation. The bonus that the so-called riders receive per delivery will then increase from four to five euros, as the company announced. However, the new regulations initially only apply to drivers and not to other employees in the camps, for example. There are other remuneration models, according to Gorillas Germany boss Alexander Brunst. Gorillas also promises better equipment for the winter. The drivers can order new winter jackets, gloves, power banks, safety glasses and neck warmers. “Above all, this is an appreciation for our riders, who are largely responsible for the success of our company,” said Brunst. At Gorillas, a conflict has been raging between employees and the company over better working conditions for months. After long arguments, the employees have had their own works council since Saturday. The management had tried to prevent the election in court, but most recently failed before the Berlin State Labor Court.
