Drivers working for the e-hailing platforms, Uber and Bolt, in Abuja may embark on strike over unfavorable fare charges and conditions.
The information was made known by Evans Agada, the vice president of the National Union of Professional App-based Workers in Abuja, in a statement to The Guardian on Sunday, September 13, 2020.
“We are trying to gather the drivers to seek their own opinion and we will now start our warning strike,” he stated.
According to Evans, the industrial action was necessary to protest the “unfavorable partnership” relationship with the e-hailing companies.
Speaking further, he said:
“We insist that you investigate and conduct proper research into these issues of poor fare charges on trips offered to riders in the Abuja FCT.
Issues such as riders disrespect, terrible road networks, excessive interference of law enforcement agents, high cost of vehicle maintenance, high cost of fuel pump price, inconsiderate waiting for riders has hampered driver partner’s effort to deliver quality service to the riders.”
