All over the world, gig workers are fighting for their rights and winning. Rideshare and food-delivery drivers here in Aotearoa could be the next cab off the rank.
FIRST Union and E tū are taking Uber to the Employment Court on behalf of drivers, who argue they are actually employees, not independent contractors, and should be entitled to employment rights and benefits.
At the same time, the Government is considering how to improve protections for contractors, which could also lead to positive change for drivers.
To achieve the best outcome, we need you to get involved. Be part of the collective action by sharing your experiences and views on how the job could improve.
Hearing real stories from real people will make a difference to what the Government and the public think. Share your story and together we can use the power of our personal experiences to shape new policy and law.
