Uber drivers’ union urges Uber to suspend its ‘savage’ contract

The National Unions of Trades Unions is calling on Uber to withdraw its “savage” contract with the US-based transport company, arguing the company has “no business model that works for our country”.

The union’s executive director, Jeff Hanson, told the Financial Times that the contract “doesn’t fit the modern world” and would be seen as a “threat to our industry”.

“It’s no wonder the company is desperate to continue with the contract it has with the drivers who want to continue their livelihoods,” Mr Hanson said.

Uber drivers across the US and Europe have been demanding the company cancel its contract with drivers who have been protesting at the company’s demand that it provide them with paid holiday.

Uber has been criticised by union members for the “slanderous” contract and for refusing to give drivers holiday pay, and drivers in several states have demanded that they be paid overtime.

Uber also announced on Thursday that it would stop offering its services in New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington DC.
