Popular Taxi service, Uber is facing operational troubles. Just days after Uber lost its right to classify its drivers as self-employed in the UK, it is now facing troubles in Nigeria.
Its Abuja Partner Forum has announced that starting today, Uber drivers will proceed on a strike until the resolution of their grievances.
Here are three of the reasons the drivers are proceeding on strike;
- Uber drivers in Abuja are demanding an increase in per minute rates to N30/min as well as a base fare rate to N3000 (from N220)
- The introduction of penalties for prospective riders when they keep drivers waiting for very long
- Improved procedures for resolving issues of the drivers.
