    For the millions of workers already in vulnerable situations, the COVID-19 crisis can have devastating consequences: their fundamental rights at work are under threat, pushing them and their families towards greater insecurity.

    Labour geographies of the platform economy: Understanding collective organizing strategies in the context of digitally mediated work

    22 April 2020

    The article examines the geographies of collective labour struggle in the platform economy. It distinguishes between the unique spatial features associated with place-based work and crowdwork to examine the divergent collective organizing strategies developed therein. Taking works councils, collective bargaining and multi-enterprise agreements as three examples of social dialogue, the article considers why different types of platform workers gravitate towards particular strategies, analyses the regulatory frameworks within which these workers’ collective struggles are bound, and assesses the propensity for these expressions of solidarity to improve the terms and conditions of platform work.
