A Uber Driver

Uber recent fare reduced by 15%

Uber has over 10,000 drivers in London. Now on average drivers are paying £160 in commission. There are drivers who pay £100 and some are even paying £300. If we do the maths and use the average figures Uber is making 10,000 (drivers) x £160 = £1,600,000. Now that over £1 and half million pounds (this is figure is their low income). Uber is simply greedy !

The recent fare deductions are not right. Uber want to kill off all the market for other company’s . Drivers will have no choice but to work for Uber. They could have easily reduced Drivers commission also.
We drivers need to make a stand. We will be holding a protest soon. We want Uber to understand it is the drivers who made Uber what it is today!!

1. Uber is worth £18 Billion and drivers commission is still 20%. Uber can reduce this to 10% and still make good profit.
2. We need a Tip option on Uber platform as it is for Uber Taxis.
3. Uber should not be able to hire (drivers) their way out of bad management. We need a reasonable number of cars on the roads and not exceed demand. Currently drivers have constant fear of being deactivated due to bad feedback.
4. A complaint procedure in place should drivers not be happy with any driver Operation team in the office.
5. A driver only union were Uber consult with the union before any major decisions are action such as fare deduction or commissions increase. The unions should be solely run by drivers.
