A group of Uber drivers has filed a lawsuit accusing the ride-share giant of coercing workers to support California Proposition 22.
California’s 2020 election ballots will contain a section for residents to vote on Prop. 22, which would allow Uber, Lyft and other ride-share companies to classify drivers as independent contractors rather than employees.
“This is an absurd lawsuit, without merit, filed solely for press attention and without regard for the facts,” an Uber spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement. “It can’t distract from the truth: that the vast majority of drivers support Prop 22 and have for months because they know it will improve their lives and protect the way they prefer to work.”
