LagRide, Uber drivers push for worker-friendly policies

2 min read

The Amalgamated Union of App-Based Transporters of Nigeria (AUATON) has urged Lagosride management to swiftly implement a worker-friendly policy to ensure the safety of its members and property.

The call was made by the union on Tuesday, 9 January, in Lagos, in a statement by its chairman, media, publicity, and Technical Committee, Jossy Olawale.

It stated that the loss of its first national deputy president, Padmore Adebayo, on Monday while performing his duties, made the call imperative.

It said: “As a union, our demand for adequate regulation and welfare of platform workers remains unflinching and relentless until ‘Victoria ascerta”, it stated.

“Our call to the Lagosride management is to render necessary support and compensation for the deceased’s family and adopt a platform worker-friendly policy immediately.

“The conditions of work established by platforms such as Lagride, Uber, Bolt, and Indriver were deemed unacceptable by the union.

“Such requirements, according to the statement, include high asset repayment, low fares, high daily targets, and high commissions”.

The union further stated that the platform workers are subjected to long working hours, low pay, weariness, a lack of downtime, difficulty meeting daily goals, family time, and needs due to anti-worker policies and a lack of healthcare insurance.
