Uber decision is long overdue and we hope that it is more than simply a PR move to repair their public image – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to Uber’s announcement that they will give drivers sick pay and parental leave, said:

“This decision is long overdue and we hope that it is more than simply a PR move to repair their public image.

“Uber and companies like it must put an immediate end to exploitative practices and ensure that their workers have full access to their legal rights, such as the minimum wage.

“Labour will ensure that all workers have equal rights from day one and introduce a Real Living Wage of £10 an hour by 2020.”
