Meituan delivery couriers in Shanwei, a city in southern China’s Guangdong province, have been on strike since last week due to a drop in earnings per order and cancelled rain allowance, multiple posts on the short video platform Douyin show. The food delivery giant has reportedly summoned riders from neighboring cities to Shanwei to fill gaps in service due to the strike, with screenshots circulating online suggesting that drivers who did work were being offered a reward of RMB 10 ($1.45) per completed order with RMB 200 per day guaranteed, although this has not been officially confirmed by TechNode. Delivery drivers on average usually receive less than RMB 5 per order. According to a local resident cited by media outlet CLS, the newly-arrived riders had significantly reduced delivery times, which last week were “more than an hour.” Some local Meituan riders were spotted riding electric bikes with license plates from the neighboring city of Huizhou, the resident added, suggesting they had been drafted in to make deliveries in Shanwei. A Meituan courier with an IP address in Guangdong province posted a video today on Douyin, noting that the Shanwei strike has entered its fifth day. [CLS, in Chinese]
