Tens of thousands of Uber drivers are set for increased earnings following GMB negotiations with the company.

Prices will increase across the UK, at different rates for different cities. In London prices will go up on average by around five per cent.

GMB union and Uber last year signed a groundbreaking trade union recognition deal.

The company has already introduced holiday pay, guaranteed minimum earnings and access to a pension plan- the only major private hire operator to do so.

Martin Smith, GMB National Organiser, said, “Following negotiations between Uber and GMB, drivers across the country will see more cash in their pockets.

“During this cost of living crisis, which is seeing workers struggling to make ends meet, this is a rare bit of good news.

“This success shows other private hire operators the way forward – recognise and work with professional trade unions who know how to make work better.”
