The strike is not news. What will be news is if the surge goes through the roof on strike days. You need 2 press releases.Well.... Press release, usually with in two days of the strike. Remember the world is used to seeing a strike as a result of failed negociations. They track high profile negociations.
Will the news consider the uber strike a big deal, probably only if people are actually protesting in front of the offices! In every city!
