Commenting on today’s (Friday) ruling against Uber, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Uber should throw in the towel and accept today's judgement. No company, however big or well connected, is above the law.
“Uber must play by the rules and stop denying its drivers basic rights at work.
“This ruling should put gig economy employers on notice. Unions will expose nasty schemes that try and cheat workers out of the minimum wage and holiday pay.
“Sham self-employment exploits people and scams the taxman. The Uber drivers’ union GMB deserve huge credit for their work on this case.”
