https://www.facebook.com/events/946964915363176/The time has come for drivers across the nation to unite as one voice and demand change from Uber! Our demands are simple.
-Raise the UberX fare rates to at least 1.60 a mile across the board.
-Put a tip option on the app.
-Allow drivers to see the end destination before accepting the trip.
-Treat us as true Independent Contractors and stop deactivating drivers for low acceptance rating or high cancelation. As true IC's, we have the right to pick and choose rides.
-Do not adjust fares without first getting the drivers side.
Those are the main key points. Drivers who participate should create phony riders accounts and request Uber all throughout the weekend and just let it go and wait till the driver cancels. This will highly discourage drivers from continuing to drive that weekend.
Don't want to make the description too long. You can find out more info from the event posts. Lets make Uber history!!
Interesting, though I don't see Uber giving a damn about any of those demands. Not sure who picked 10/16 or what significance that has, if any.
