    Abstract

    Comments on R. (on the application of Independent Workers Union of Great Britain) v Central Arbitration Committee (Admin) on whether delivery riders were "workers" with collective bargaining rights protected by ECHR art.11. Criticises the judge's approach to the employment relationship concept under art.11 and the margin of appreciation, and proposes an approach to "personal work" consistent with the employment relationship concept.
