Uber and Lyft taxi drivers announced a 24-hour strike, which they plan to hold on May 8. The strike is timed to the IPO service and it will be attended by tens of thousands of drivers who require the company to increase pay and job security.

The union Rideshare Drivers United announced a 24-hour strike for Uber and Lyft drivers from eight US cities, which will be held on May 8. During the day, service applications will be disabled in San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Washington. In addition, drivers will come to the pickets, reports Auto Informer, citing the source.

The strike will be attended by tens of thousands of drivers who are members of the Independent Trade Union of Great Britain, the New York Alliance of Taxi Drivers and other professional organizations. Rallies will be held in several cities, in particular from 11:00 to 15:00 at the Uber Greenlight office in Redondo Beach, California, USA.

Drivers will demand that Uber rescind his decision to cut wages by 25%. They also want to increase tariffs, improve working conditions, including setting a minimum rate of $ 28 per hour and higher pay for work on weekends. This strike will be the largest coordinated event among service drivers in the United States.
