24-HOUR UBER STRIKE ACTION: The ADCU begins nationwide strike and London demonstration today

https://www.taxi-point.co.uk/post/24-hour-uber-strike-action…

The App Drivers & Couriers Union (ADCU) have called for a 24-hour national strike for Uber drivers from midnight and lasting until 11.59pm Wednesday 22 June.

The union say Uber drivers are facing an unprecedented cost of living crisis due to fuel inflation running at 44%, vehicle costs up 28% and household inflation up 7.8%.

The ADCU claim Uber has failed to either obey the Supreme Court ruling in full which would protect workers or otherwise raise fares and pay in line with inflation of operating costs.
