Uber drivers across the UK set to strike for 24 hours from tomorrow



Uber drivers across the UK are set to strike for 24 hours from tomorrow as the company continues to appeal against a court ruling giving them employee rights.
 
The Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) has called for a 24-hour strike of Uber drivers in London, Birmingham and Nottingham from 1pm on Tuesday 9 October.


Uber lost a court battle in 2016 when an employment tribunal found against its classification of drivers as independent contractors, although the company continues to appeal against that ruling.
