Uber ready for talks on London ban

Uber ready for talks on London ban”

Tom Elvidge told the Sunday Times that while the company hasn't "been asked to make any changes, we'd like to know what we can do".

He said: "What I think we need with Uber is decent pay and conditions for its staff".

After Transport for London (TfL) announced that they will not renew Uber's license to operate in the London, Londoners jumped into action.

The TFL sided with the MPs and argued that the recent refusal is due to Uber's failure to accurately report "serious criminal offense".

The British capital's transport regulator deemed Uber unfit to run a tax service and said its license would not be renewed when it expires on 30 September.

On the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said TfL's decision had given Uber an opportunity to "mend its ways".

"The 3.5m Londoners and 40,000 drivers who rely on our app would expect us to sit down and work together to get this right", he added.

Half a million people have signed an online petition in under 24 hours backing Uber's bid to stay on the roads of London, showing the company is turning to its tried-and-tested tactic of asking customers for help when it locks horns with regulators.

Sadiq Khan avoided any "Uber for Khan" moments despite suffering a 6-0 defeat alongside Labour colleagues in the politicians' annual conference football match against Westminster journalists. The decision in their favour was thought to open up the possibility of claims from all of its 40,000 drivers in the United Kingdom, who are now not entitled to holiday pay, pensions or other workers' rights.

According to the public statement published by Transport for London (TfL), Uber is not fit to hold a private hire operator license. He states that all companies operating in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards of work.

Mr McCluskey told Peston on Sunday he had never taken an Uber and added: "I'm one of these people that believes that Uber is part of this frightful, race-to-the-bottom, culture that has developed in this country".

To the Uber riders, the newspaper said, "TfL will look as if it bowed down to pressure from the capital's infamously protective black cabs".

Uber will be fighting for its future on two fronts this week, as the ride-hailing service attempts to reverse the revocation of its London licence while appealing against a landmark ruling on the way it engages its drivers.

Based in San Francisco, Uber has always been criticised for its business practices, including the background checks it implements on potential drivers and for allegedly exploiting drivers once they have been hired.
