This is only a pipe dream, if tomorrow every driver that is currently on board quits, within one weeks time Uber will have new drivers on board, with even cheaper rates, and the pax will be ecstatic.

That isn't the point... the point isn't "threatening to quit driving". The point is to show that Uber drivers can organize and create a disruption to Uber's business. A weekend of lower driver ability, tied up drivers, and high surge - paired with press coverage - will raise public awareness of the core issues (specifically, Uber's price cutting tactics that are leaving drivers making $2.50/hour, the reality of "tipping", etc.), and will impact Uber's bottom line.

This plan really only needs about 10-20% of the drivers in each market to participate, and has the potential to greatly impact service over those dates.

You must be new, like the majority of drivers and people on this board, Uber does not care, and nothing you will do will change that.

There are 3 weeks till this strike. Here are some suggestions for things to do to inform other Drivers about ‪#‎UberSTRIKE‬

  1. Write comments on Uber related news articles informing other Drivers, with links to UberPeople.net.
  2. Use burner phones with fake rider accounts to request rides, text the Drivers the strike info with links to UberPeople.net, and then cancel the ride.
  3. Drive to other Drivers in your market by finding them on the Rider App & inform them in person.
  4. Write the #UberSTRIKE info on your friends and families cars' back windshields with chalk markers.

YOU are an "active member". Those of us with the status "Well-known Member" have been on this forum longer than you, The_One. And we are ready to stand up to Uber.

If that weekend you, The_One, want to chase the surges, show up only to be cancelled before the 5 min, go for it!
I have been here way before you, you have no idea.

How about writing about it on back windshield ?
