Drivers for ride-hailing giant Uber and its rival Lyft are planning a Friday protest in downtown San Francisco as they seek better conditions from both companies. The gig economy workers are asking both companies for higher pay and a union. In an open letter, published to coincide with the protest, drivers called on Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Lyft founders Logan Green and John Zimmer for changes in treatment. Drivers plan to present the letter at the protest, which will take place at Uber headquarters at 10:30 a.m. PT.
