I've been looking at the welcome section of the forum, and the delusions the newbies have is very concerning. There's a constant stream of these newbies, so I expect that they won't respect the strike.

What lies are they being fed? Some people are even still leasing new cars so they can Uber. A few years ago, driving passengers around for money was just called being a taxi driver, and was considered one of the least glamorous jobs one could have. Now it's called Uber and it's hip.

This Strike has gotten considerable media attention already, and Uber must already be devising ways to fracture it.

Randy "Uberman" Shear is one way they're doing it. Some other ****tard on here glados is another. Other than that, I haven't seen anything stand out. According to Gooberman, Uber's not even acknowledging anything is going on.

Lets make sure they acknowledge it Oct. 16-18th. Uber OFF
uber cannot acknowledge the strike. it will only bring media attention. they are trying to diminish it by ignoring it. that is smart. also uber thinks that we are just talk. that we don't have the resolve to go through with it. they're hoping for the best.

Not worried about Sabotage. More concerned about the aftermath.
Say rates get increased but then commission on Uber X go to 30%. This was something I thought of when a "false alarm" went out that Uber increased 20% commission rates.
But really is there laywers involved to block backlash or anything else to be done against drivers? I am seeing part time drivers and even deactivated/quit drivers jumping into this trying to get others involved. But they have nothing much to lose.

Uber doesn't have to do anything to sabotage the strike. We have plenty of fellow drivers who are so against striking and striking drivers that they will work overtime just to thwart the efforts of striking drivers. I was thrown out and banned from a Facebook group simply for asking "why so much hate and vitriol against the strike? " our fellow drivers are our biggest adversaries in this protest.

Yep you are 100% correct. Lepke I will sum up what alot of people see.

The more people post incorrect list of demands, say they quit already but pushing an agenda, post statements that a 5yr old looks to post (wall of text, no commas, punctuation), the more people run around and state lets get new drivers on board (thats desperation at its finest because they feel defeated already).
I could go on and on.
The more people will come to their own sense of what to do. Which is to question everything!

The people they should have involved (mature, rational, organized, actual full time drivers) are the one's everyone is pissing off. You can't stir up a bunch of people like Abe has done then say its not about me but the drivers. He now sits in a corner and takes no responsibility.

Because he has been FIRED anyway.

It leads to question then why say anything at all and start something you can't benefit from. Unless he is self gloating! He didn't speak well in that video and was obviously rattled. And there was no need to make the video. And don't try to tell me "he just wants what is best for drivers left". Yeah the best or just to get back at Uber because he got what he deserved.

What Dallas Black/SUV did was for themself. And from that each city with issues like low mileage rate etc should had organized and go to the Uber Office to get that city where it needs to be. I know some are trying to do this. But as a whole it is a 3 ring circus and looks like crap. Mature, organized, rational people would do as Dallas did. Not this 3 ring Circus!

I don't care about this guy "Abe". The fact that this is getting media coverage and that reporters are asking uber for comment is a good thing. So it took a sketchy guy from KC to get the ball rolling, so what. While this strike will most likely amount to nothing, uber is hearing about it and has to know that it's just the beginning. Looks like Seattle drivers are going to be able to unionize. Uber keeps track of buzz surrounding their brand. Maybe, just maybe they will think twice before doing more shit that piss's off drivers. Probably not but maybe.

Hi, crowsandcats.

Welcome to the forum!

Please read your Partnership Agreement.

New Drivers have 30 Days to Opt-out of Binding Arbitration.

UNS:)
Thanks North Star. A little late on the draw though.

I wish I knew about the 30 days to opt out back in March when I signed up. Uber failed to pay me, so I'm certainly hoping to be a part of a class-action lawsuit.
