Wobbly* is an app started by a former Deliveroo courier @KingMob to mobilize workers like that.

If Deliveroo couriers would simultaneously launch a strike with Wobbly and a worker-owned replacement with , they could succeed better than doing only either one.

Workers and customers would not just be mobilized to strike and boycott, but also to connect with each other using an alternative platform that cuts the middleman.

Exciting idea. The app seems useful for a variety of contexts where grassroots self-organization and networking is important. The idea of a platform that facilitates simultaneously striking and operating a cooperative is great. (Reminds me of the 1919 general strike in Seattle, WA.)

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
