Uber drivers and other “precarious workers” marched through central London, United Kingdom yesterday, Oct. 30 in a protest organized by the Independent General Workers of Great Britain union.

Cleaners and other former University of London workers whose employment was outsourced to contractors, as well as couriers employed by an NHS contractor, were also represented by the union in what it dubbed the “rise of the precarious workers.”


The video of the protest was shared by the union’s official Twitter account on the same day.


The protesters were due to march between four locations that are related to those interests: transport for London, the Royal Courts of Justice, University of London’s Senate House and The Doctor’s Laboratory, which is a privately run medical lab.

An appeal lodged by Uber was being heard yesterday at the Court of Appeal, which is based at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Uber was appealing an employment tribunal case brought by the GMB Union, that would force it to treat its drivers as workers, rather than self-employed contractors as it currently does. KM
