Uber drivers are set to strike and protest outside the ride-hailing app's London offices this week on Wednesday 6 October.

The protest has been organised by the United Private Hire Drivers union (UPHD).

Drivers are being asked to switch off their Uber app for 24 hours in protest against the treatment of drivers and incidents of alleged unfair dismissal.

Drivers will meet at the Asda store in Stepney Green before making their way to the Uber offices in Aldgate.

A spokesperson for the UPHD union said: "Please help us spread the word:


"Switch off the Uber app for 24 hours on 6 Oct. Join the protest outside Uber's Office at Aldgate Tower, E1 8QN from 11am.

"If coming with a car, meet before at 10am at Stepney Green ASDA to then drive over together.

"We demand: A decent livelihood: better rate per mile, 15% max commission, no fixed rate trips, transparency of charges on customers.

"No more unfair terminations & reinstatement for unfairly terminated drivers. Scrap the racist facial recognition algorithms."
