The Institute for the Future of Work Responds to Uber formally recognising GMB.
Anna Thomas, Director of the Institute for the Future of Work, responding to the announcement said:
"We are pleased to see Uber taking steps towards improving the quality of work for their workforce by formally recognising GMB.
“Unfortunately the poor practices of the gig economy have already become embedded in other more established parts of the UK economy as new analysis from IFOW's ‘The Amazonian Era: How algorithmic systems are eroding good work’ shows.
"While it is excellent to see some businesses beginning to take responsibility for poor working practices we believe this isn't enough. Urgent action must be taken by Government to protect access, terms and dignity of work."
Institute for the Future of Work Director Anna Thomas is available for interview.
