Seattle City Counsel meeting Wednesday on Driver union.
Chris, the full time driver might not know what to expect. He wants to form a union for a non union business. You can push buttons and want all you want. If there's any chance of a union the first thing Uber will do is cancel all the insurance policies with James River. That means your $15 a month rideshare endorsement now becomes a real commercial policy that is almost $400 a month (maybe more depending on circumstances). Uber will NEVER be considered an employer. All the TNC's will close their doors before having to pay employees to drive. The overhead for non experienced drivers would cause the TNC's to charge more then a traditional cab. It WILL NEVER HAPPEN. But dreams are something that keeps many people hopeful. Sad part is that less then 2 years ago not one person in this country ever dreamed about becoming an employee for Uber. Now they're begging to be employees. Good luck Chris.Seattle City Counsel meeting Wednesday on Driver union.
First, hell no she doesn't speak for all drivers and she really sounds like an Uber plant for this story. I'm confident Uber has people write stories that cater to their every whim. This sounds like one more of em."Tami Dunlap was also at those meetings.
Dunlap: "I'm a full-time special education teacher and back in December of 2014, I was looking for a way to make some extra money. And so I was considering a second job, and somebody suggested that I look into Uber."
She's been driving part-time for Uber since then. But Dunlap is worried that part-time drivers may not be deemed eligible to vote on union representation. And she wants the chance to vote "no."
Dunlap: "The reason I like Uber so much is it's under my control. And the idea that some third party was going to come in and have some sort of say about when I drive or where I drive or how much I drive just has absolutely no appeal for me."
That's not to say Dunlap has no issues with Uber. She says many drivers believe the base fare is too low - a recent trip netted her just $2.85.
And she agrees drivers do need more support from Uber when they get the occasional low rating.
But instead of a union, she wants to address issues directly with the company."
Tami Dunlap of Seattle likely has the IQ of a goat. She's been working for Uber for a year and a half, she scrapes by making $2.85 a ride, and she still thinks she can "address issues directly with the company?"
This is the low-IQ driver which Uber loves. Drivers like this make life miserable for all other drivers because they're completely clueless about real life.
The good thing about unions is they tell the stupid people to go sit in the back of the room. Pay your union dues and go sit in the back and let the grownups make the decisions. We'll save you (and us) from your stupidity. We know you're not even smart enough to thank us but at least you can sit in the back and keep quiet so you won't ruin things for everyone.
