Just Eat and Stuart.com will also be affected as couriers who work across the platforms refuse to work from 5pm to 10pm.

Organiser Delivery Job UK said: “Sacrificing a few hours for our rights is essential, instead of continuing to work incessantly for insufficient wages.

“Our request is simple: we want fair compensation.

“We are tired of being exploited and risking our lives every day… It’s time for our voices to be heard.”

For Deliveroo, delivery pay ranges from £2.80 to £3.15.

The strike organisers want it increased to a minimum of £5.

Deliveroo said riders got at least the national living wage although most earned far more.

Uber Eats said: “We know the vast majority of couriers are satisfied.

“We regularly engage with couriers to look at how we can improve their experience.”
