First Union and E Tū are filing a case to the employment court to advocate for better rights for Uber drivers. The current system, where drivers are contractors rather than workers, means drivers are not entitled to rights such as sick leave, holiday pay or a guaranteed minimum wage.

Noah Ferguson-Dudding spoke to Anita Rosentreter from First Union about why the unions are going to court. Noah also spoke to Mea'ole Keil, a Wellington-based Uber driver who is also advocating for change.
