Uber is starting to get desperate facing the possibility of their drives becoming employees.
Apparently, the petition comes up in the driver's app that prompts to make them sign the petition.
“When I press to go with Uber, I get a notification and the notification says ‘Protect Driver’s Flexibility’,” explained Al Aloudi, a driver with both Uber and Lyft for eight years. He says the in-app notifications are usually about important issues like money or safety, so drivers check them regularly. (The companies send less urgent messages to drivers’ email.)
