- A video of the Intramuros precinct commander and the Food Panda riders has gone viral
- The precinct commander was telling them that they were destroying the peace and order of the area
- He could be heard in the video saying that the riders were unruly and that they were causing traffic
- The Food Panda riders on the other hand were saying that they were not staging a rally but they would just like to convey to DOLE the alleged irregularity of their company
A video of the Intramuros precinct commander who was using a bullhorn and addressing the Food Panda riders has gone viral.
The riders were lining up at the side of the road without holding any placards.
They said that they would like to air their grievance to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) office in relation to the kind of treatment that they receive from their company.
ABS-CBN News reported that the drivers alleged that they get too little pay and that there is an irregularity in the freelance system.
They were there to air their grievance to DOLE, and as per GMA News, the delivery riders claimed that they were receiving less in payments with every delivery because of the unfair grading system implemented by the company.
A report by Leslie Ann Aquino of Manila Bulletin stated that the company will be looking into the issue aired by the riders.
Meanwhile, in the video, the unnamed precinct commander scolded the riders and said, "Sinisira niyo ang peace and order ng Intramuros."
Here's a screenshot from the said video.
Delivery riders have raised so many concerns on social media, especially when it comes to false or fake bookings. Giving them the right compensation for their efforts would surely benefit them.
For instance, there were 10 food delivery riders who were victimized by pranksters placing fake orders. The witness narrated that there were about 10 riders who gathered outside the address of just one house.
Despite the tough job that they are in, these food delivery riders would often show their helpful side. A video of a rider saving a child from drowning in the pool became viral.
