Event description

Description

Today, Private Hire drivers are currently classified as independent contractors meaning that we do not have rights such as the minimum wage or paid holidays. There is a lot of misunderstanding amongst drivers especially the perception that becoming a ‘worker’ would result in the loss of flexible working hours, but legally there is nothing in ‘worker’ or ’employed’ status that makes flexible working impossible (as any zero hours sports direct person will tell you).
All drivers should ask themselves why Uber and other Private Hire companies do not wish us to have ‘worker’ status. The only plausible answer is there are times when we would not be paid the legal minimum wage. It’s time to take a stand and defend ourselves from the unfair practices being foisted onto drivers by uncaring companies.
By joining together, UPHD and IWGB will be in a strong position to fight for the benefit of drivers, a workforce that has never had such protection.
