Taxi for Uber

By signing this you are pledging support from the GMB in this campaign. We are grateful for your support.

Uber - our landmark legal campaign which has shifted the landscape in favour of workers who are being exploited in the so-called ‘gig economy’.

In 2016 we took successful legal action when our Uber driver members told us of the long hours they were working to make up for being paid far below the legal minimum wage, once the costs of doing the job were taken into account.

With no right to paid breaks and holiday pay these drivers are completely dependent on the hours in the car. Add the ability for Uber to fix the cut of the money drivers make from their labour and it’s clear that far from running their own businesses, they are being taken for a ride. 

Instead of accepting the ruling and changing its ways, Uber has challenged the verdict three times, and three times they've been told they're wrong.

Watch our video below to find out more.
