Following the success of our latest protest, we are calling on all RSDU members and any other Uber driver in Melbourne to join us and Log-OFF Tuesday 14/3/2017 from 6:30AM until 5PM in protest over our poor pay and working conditions.
Stop Press: we are happy to announce that Brisbane Uber drivers are joining the protest and will be LOGGING OFF at the same times.
We drivers are the face of Uber. Without us there is no Uber. Being classified as sub-contractors gives us every right to have a say over fare pricing, GST allocation and customer service. We can no longer be ignored, threatened with deactivation and silenced. We can no longer be patient, while our working conditions and pay continue to deteriorate in a fast race to the bottom.
Drivers! unity is our only strong bargaining chip when it comes to companies like Uber and/or getting our message across to our Government. Remember, the things that divide us are the things that we see from our own, often selfish, point of view. We therefore call on all drivers to unite and stick together on that day and LOG OFF for the greater cause and benefit for us all. For a viable and fair Ride Share service in Victoria, for both drivers and passengers, for years to come.
It’s Your car! Your time! Your investment! Your Rules!
Uber driver, Tuesday 14/3/2017 from 6:30AM until 5PM is your chance to stand firm for your rights and have your say together with thousands of other Melbourne Uber drivers.
