RSDU’s list of demands was made very public and communicated to Uber via most media outlets in this country since 27 February of this year, yet we received no reply to date.
Uber has failed to provide an acceptable response to any of our demands. Almost two months later and the base rates in Melbourne are still at very low unsustainable levels. Working conditions are still poor and in very strong contrast to Australian safety and minimum wage laws/standards.
Ride Share Drivers United are now looking into intensifying and prolonging disruptions to the Uber service in Melbourne in the coming weeks. On 22/4/2017 we posted a letter to Uber with a copy of our list of demands and suggestions. The letter is addressed to Uber’s new general Manager, Mr. Lucas Groeneveld.
Letter has been confirmed received.
As mentioned in our letter, we now expect Uber to fully comply with our demands on or before the deadline of Friday 28/4/2017.
Copy of our letter to Uber’s General Manager and accompanying documents are available to members and the general public and can be viewed here. Uber drivers Australia wide, please feel free to register with us so we can keep you up to date. Registration/membership is free.
