Delivery drivers will go on strike from 6 December in response to proposed pay cuts.
Couriers who work for the third-party company Stuart, and deliver for JustEat, held a protest last Saturday and now plan to escalate to a strike on Monday.
Bahador Roshan, a driver for Stuart, said: “If I can’t pay my rent I have to move my family.
“It is losing hope for the future, it is like a nightmare.”
Despite the snow, over 100 people attended last weekend’s protest, including Olivia Blake, MP for Sheffield Hallam.
She said: “Stuart couriers have helped keep Sheffield going through the pandemic. For them to be rewarded with a pay cut like this is not acceptable.”
Stuart’s new pay model will see deliveries under half a mile earn the rider a payment of £3.40, instead of the previous £4.50.
Drivers will also be required to cover their own vehicle costs.
A Stuart spokesperson said these deliveries under half a mile only account for 4% of total deliveries.
The spokesperson added: “We will continue to guarantee pay per hour that is among the highest in the sector.”
Parirs Dixon, chair of the Sheffield Couriers & Logistics Branch of the IWGB Union, said: “We are striking because we deserve a pay rise, not a pay cut.
“We are already pushed to the limit, but if this pay cut goes through, we will have to work harder and longer to make the same money.”
