The Preventive Measures Section of the Court of Milan, chaired by Fabio Roia,
revoked the judicial administration that had been ordered on May 29, 2020 for Uber Italy for hiring the riders in the Uber Eats service
In light of the positive report of the judicial administrators, presented yesterday at the hearing, the prosecutor Paolo Storari had also asked for the revocation, on the basis of the effort made by the company to eliminate forms of exploitation, to protect the safety and health of the messengers and to improve their economic treatment.
Uber Italy thus returns to operate in full autonomy.
The Uber case was "an opportunity, experienced with great collaboration by the institutions (Prefect of Milan, trade organizations), the judicial administration office, the company's defenders, to intervene in a market sector of great exploitation and subjective fragility in order to trace a virtuous path where the logic of service, respect for the fundamental rights of individuals and the necessary business profit can find a necessary synthesis in the link of legality ".
This was written by the Prevention Measures Section of the Court which today revoked the commissioner for Uber Italy.
The salary, now applied by Uber Eats Italy for riders, is a "market proposal that has definitely abandoned any logic of exploitation" to "propose job opportunities, also seized by students, young adults or people who are underemployed or unemployed. , to be considered protected in terms of respect for rights ".
This was written by the judges (Roia-Tallarida-Pontani) in the provision with which today, in advance of the one-year deadline scheduled for the end of May, they revoked the judicial administration of Uber Italy which had been ordered to hijack the riders.
From the investigation by the Economic-Financial Police Unit of the Gdf and by the prosecutor Paolo Storari, who on the criminal front brought to a preliminary hearing the heads of a labor brokerage company and a manager (now suspended) of Uber, had come to the surface that the riders of the 'Uber eats' service, according to the charges, were "paid at a piece rate of 3 euros per delivery", "robbed" of tips and "punished" if they rebelled.
"In the simulation carried out by the judicial administrations, the judges write - the new rate applied today by Uber Eats Italy Srl involves an average increase in compensation of 40% on short journeys (estimated time 12 minutes) and 11% on intermediate journeys (estimated time 20 minutes) with a profit projection, based on the full decision-making autonomy and choice of the organization of the individual couriers who can decide how and how much to work, which can vary from Euro 431.78 for a medium-low frequency of orders (between 60 and 150 per month) up to Euro 1,302.97 for an order frequency of more than 250 per month (all data refer to January 2021) ".
