BILL OF RIGHTS
FOR PASSENGERS & DRIVERS IN THE UBER ECONOMY
In the face of a rapidly changing economy, we stand firm that our rights must be respected. While we appreciate innovation, new technologies should not be an excuse to strip us of our basic dignity or take away our fundamental right to act together to improve our lives.
