A Bolt spokesperson has addressed the company’s position in light of today’s Bolt food courier strike.
“We are aware of the strike which is taking place [on Friday]. We have been in regular communication with our couriers and informing them of our new steps. We are working towards optimizing the pricing that should have a positive impact on courier earnings within the next few days.”
“Our goal is to provide high quality service to our customers and best earning opportunities to our couriers,” the spokesperson said.
Early on Friday, over 300 food couriers went on strike over a reported decrease in earnings and dispute with the employer. The couriers will reportedly remain offline for the remainder of the day.
