After knowing the current text of the labor reform, Alianza In, the applications guildwarned about “the risk of destruction of more than 80,000 jobs for people who operate as delivery drivers through digital platforms”.

José Daniel López, Executive Director of Alianza Inpointed out that this reform must innovate and provide opportunities on a large scale, without committing irresponsibility.
Here the dilemma is not between lack of protection and social protection; Yes, the more than 120,000 householders who work in Colombia can be protected without risking their income. This economic sector fulfills an important social function (for various population groups) and is committed and ready to fight back and improve the formalization and protection of delivery drivers”, he commented.

Likewise, it revealed the proposals that were made to the National Government and that were not taken into account in the document filed before the Legislature.

“SAn atomic bomb is placed on an industry that produces self-employment on a large scale. If I become unemployed today, I can work tomorrow as a delivery person. But if the labor reform is approved as it comes, I would have to send a resume and wait to see if they call me”, he commented.
