GMB starts legal proceedings against DX
27 April 2017
The union has officially launched proceedings against delivery company DX.
The claims, brought by law firm Leigh Day, are on behalf of six lead claimant DX workers who say they are being denied their rights as workers.
DX drivers are currently viewed as ‘self-employed contractors’ by DX, says GMB, meaning that they are denied basic rights such as holiday pay and national minimum wage.
The case is the latest in a series being brought by GMB on behalf of members to tackle the growing trend of bogus self-employment and gig economy exploitation.
