Partnering with uberX is FREE for Teachers all of September!
uberX Chicago is proud to highlight the efforts of a very important group of partners on the Uber platform - our community's teachers. For the entire month of September, we'd like to celebrate and give back to the men and women who educate our city's residents.

Uber allows educators the flexibility to earn extra income, get to know the city and connect with a variety of people in the community.

Teachers driving on the uberX platform will be eligible for commission credit-back and no fees or charges of any kind for the entire month of September!
  • New or existing partners who are teachers will receive a 20% commission credit back on each weekly payment for trips completed in the month of September
  • All deposits and fees will also be waived for qualifying partners
  • Double referral bonus - for any teacher partner, both the referrer and the referral will receive $250 once the new driver completes a single trip!
How Do I Qualify?
If you are a teacher, simply email [email protected] with proof of employment in the form of an IL teacher's license and we will get you registered!

Any teacher that partners with Uber throughout the month of September will also be eligible to join the program!

This initiative is a small way to celebrate our partners who create and provide opportunities for communities across the area.

Thanks,
Uber Chicago

Did travis go to school? Summer is where teachers have some extra time and could use it. They can't take advantage of this now. Unless they just dress like some porn movie teachers

The promo should have read - "We at Uber know about exploiting cheap labor. That's why we have partnered with teachers in IL to come work for uber. As an Uber partner, you will take what is probably your only asset, and we will suck the capital out of it by having you to drive all the equity out of your vehicle. Why grade papers when you can make an extra $10 per hour in fares? Hopefully you aren't a math teacher, because after we charge you for a phone, and take 20% of commissions after this month, and you pay Uncle Sam, you will make closer to $5 per hour. And for a nice change of pace, you can have adults instead of children disrespect you and talk behind your back. Uber on!"

The teachers in California public schools would laugh at what an UberX shift pays.

Like cops and firemen, they make $$$ here, lifetime free medical for employee and spouse, retirement at 95% of last years earnings plus 4% pay hikes every year....

NO WAY a Public School teacher would uber in California!

If Chicago Teachers who already Carpool, then sign up for the Uber Teacher Promotion, and then refer the other carpool members, then take turns driving each other in month of September, then make 2x $250 referral, and end up paying each other for the carpool trip (get to keep 100% of Fare, No Fees for September), then Uber figures it out, claims they are defrauding the system and kicks them off Uber as both Drivers/Riders....

Then again, I may be over thinking this one :)

Uber has the worst CEO in all of history.
Dan Hesse may have been a complete donk for Sprint, but at least he was a likeable man. Travis Kalanick needs to go.

If nothing else changes with Uber, it is that. Kalanick is so obnoxious in every single breath he takes. I don't like the man. I don't like the man. I don't like the man.

I am a teacher in California and I would like commission free Uber driving. I don't like a lot of Uber policies but one might consider that some things they do could actually benefit drivers.

September is over anyways.

there are some outrage posts on twitter around this, saying no way they would stoop to work for uber in their non-existent spare time!

In California the union teachers with tenure have a pretty good job, with amazing benefits for the employee and spouse... I wish I had a job that good.

Median teacher pay in AZ (low paying state) is 51k ... plus full ride pension, excellent benefits and everyone kisses their ass.

All this for 9 months of work a year. They can even work part time in the summer and bank more or enjoy the paid vacation.

Still they complain ... boo hoo ... I have to drop 10 bucks on some supplies for my class ... shit I drop 10$ to tip my driver and I make less than you.

Dry those tears.

OldTown I know you like to be sarcastic but your last post was full of inaccuracies. The starting teachers pay for Arizon is 31K and the average pay is 47K. The "full ride pension" is also false. Retired teachers get paid 80% of their highest 5 years of pay. So if their highest five years averages out to 50K then they get 40K in retirement. Sounds great but you can't get that until the "rule of 80" which means your age and years of service add up to 80. (example Age: 55, teaching years:25 would equal 80 and you can retire). So you think ok great retire at 55 and get 40K a year to knit, well not so fast my friend. You can't actually retire until 65 now. If you try to pull out money early you have to pay huge penalties. Oh yeah, and you don't get a choice to put into retirement. Teacher Retirement System is a requirement for a teacher to pay into, and they are a billion dollar entity that likes to play the stock market so you don't really know for sure that your money will be there in the end. "Everyone kisses their ass" is also a false statement, more like parents complain and kids are awful some days.

Also, what other job are you expected to put in overtime hours and not get paid for it? All those lessons you hated in school don't magically create themselves. You are expected to write them and secure materials before or after school hours.

And the other post about tenure and free insurance for spouses is also false. In Texas there is no tenure for public school teachers and it costs you close to $800 to cover your spouse and child.

Oh and the previous post about 95% pay and 4% pay hikes is false. In Texas its 80% and I haven't received a pay raise in 3 years (this is my 7th year of teaching) and if we do get raises it is 3% which equates to about $50 a month.
