Uber lose latest UK employment tribunal appeal

10 Nov 2017

 

 

Controversial minicab app Uber have lost the latest appeal in regards to its long running dispute over workers rights.

 

This latest setback leaves Uber with only one more option of appeal that being at the Supreme Court.

 

The landmark ruling earlier this year means Uber would have to give workers rights to all of its drivers. Some of those benefits include holiday payments and a minimum wage.

 

The cost of such benefits are likely to force the average fare up on the Uber app. It also brings into question whether the drivers should be footing the VAT on each ride. 

 

GMB's legal director, Maria Ludkin said: "Uber must now face up to its responsibilities and give its workers the rights to which they are entitled.


"GMB urges the company not to waste everyone's time and money dragging their lost cause to the Supreme Court."
