Uber agrees to Australia minimum pay body after similar moves in Britain, Canada

Quick Summary AI Powered

SYDNEY : Uber Technologies Inc and Australia's main transport union agreed on Tuesday to back a federal body that enforces minimum pay for the company's drivers, joining a global thawing of relations between the ride-hailing giant and industrial bodies.

But an inquiry by the state of New South Wales recommended in April setting up a tribunal to set "minimum pay and conditions for gig workers".

Australian courts have continued to support Uber's argument that its drivers are independent contractors.
