Worker Info Exchange is a non profit organisation dedicated to helping workers access and gain insight from
data collected from them at work.
Whether you are an Uber driver or a Deliveroo rider, we aim to tilt the
balance away from big platforms,
in favour of the people who make these companies so successful every day
– the workers.
Only by working together to collect and pool our data as workers can we begin to really demand a better deal at work.
Give Worker Info Exchange your mandate to request your data for you!
Digital rights are increasingly important
in the fight for worker rights for gig economy workers who are managed and
controlled at work by hidden algorithms. Opaque automated management systems foster exploitation and discrimination. We challenge these practices through three strands of activity:
We facilitate data access by making specific subject access and data portability requests on behalf of workers. Our goal is to create transparency over their working conditions by interrogating how their work is allocated, how their pay is determined and how their performance is assessed.
We carry out targeted investigations and data analyses to expose unfair algorithmic decision making. These investigations support the strategic litigation work through which we help workers contest illegal automated dismissals and management decisions.
We support trade unions and grassroots worker organisations to aggregate their data with other workers through the development of data trusts. Armed with powerful analysis, workers can be better resourced for collective bargaining and action.
