About

We are a group of delivery drivers and workers for app-based services like Uber and Lyft, who have come together to confront job insecurity, a lack of benefits and unsafe working conditions.

We work together with UFCW 1518 to find solutions to the problems that gig and contract workers face and to hold giant tech companies like Uber accountable to the people who work for them. These companies call themselves “apps” rather than “employers” so they don’t have to abide by the Employment Standards Act and treat workers with dignity. And they’ve gotten away with it. Until now.

We’re fighting for fairness for workers in the gig economy. Learn how you can join us below.

Our Objectives

Union Protection

Currently, drivers can be terminated overnight based on false or inaccurate customer reports. Your Union will fight for you and ensure that big corporations like Uber use proper processes to resolve customer and driver issues.

Safe Workplace

App-based drivers are one of the most at-risk workers and should be protected by the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, the same basic protections all workers in British Columbia receive.

Fair Wages

App-based drivers deserve fair wages and it’s not fair for big corporations like Uber to reap huge profits while their drivers struggle to make a living. Every driver also deserves access to paid sick days and health benefits.

Municipal parking campaign

UFCW 1518 is working in partnership with drivers to call on the mayors of BC’s major cities to create free short-term parking solutions for delivery drivers while they work.
