Bolt has announced a ‘bogus substitution model’ just 24 hours after the GMB threatened the company with legal action. 

GMB ais set to lodge claims with the Employment Tribunal for worker status for Bolt App drivers

In response, the company today released new terms that allows for licensed private hire drivers to substitute their work to another driver. 

Mick Rix, GMB National Officer, said: 

“This is a bogus substitution model done within 24 hours of GMB announcing legal action. 

“Drivers deserve holiday pay, pensions and earnings compliant with National Living Wage.  

“This announcement guarantees none of those things. 

“Bolt bosses have got fat on the exploitation of drivers - that will soon come to an end.”
