Uber Drivers Stage Mass Strike Ahead of IPO
Posted On: May 08, 2019
May 8, 2019 | COLLECTIVE ACTION | The drivers whose time and labor have positioned insiders to cash out when Uber goes public on Thursday are on strike, a day before the firm’s big stock exchange debut.

In Los Angeles, the call is for a 24-hour logout scheduled to begin overnight Tuesday and punctuated with rolling rallies at the city’s biggest airport. Drivers in Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, and San Francisco are making a similar push to choke Uber and Lyft’s service offerings for significant chunks of time… Think Progress
