Uber Drivers Join Teamsters Union In California

April 23, 2016 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ News

Uber drivers in the state of California partnered with the Teamsters Union to create the App-Based Drivers Association,  that will represent ridesharing workers.


Similar to the union in Seattle, this organization will push for better benefits and conditions among drivers that normally don’t have much say.

The Teamsters effort won’t affect the earlier judgements and Uber drivers are still considered contractors, not employees. Although, it could put added pressure on the company to improve pay and workers could be more likely to walk off the job in droves when they’re frustrated with conditions.
