ITF applauds GMB court victory over Uber

The ITF (International Transport Workers' Federation) has applauded Friday’s victory for workers represented by the GMB union at the Employment Tribunal in London, which threw out Uber’s appeal against its earlier ruling that drivers at the company must be treated as the workers they are.

Steve Cotton, ITF general secretary, said: “We congratulate the GMB and the drivers for standing up for what is not just right, but unarguably right. This is the latest victory by unions standing up to the company and its pretence that its workers are self-employed and undeserving of the protections that all workers should be guaranteed.”

ITF president Paddy Crumlin stated: “We are not opposed to new transport technologies, but we are opposed to a deceitful and exploitative business model that undermines the working conditions of drivers and the safety of the travelling public.”

“The news that Uber is planning yet another appeal shows that they refuse to learn from their defeats. The truth is that it’s time for them to reform and play fair, and stop trying to evade their responsibilities.”
