SEIU and Ride-Hailing Drivers Petition CA Supreme Court to Overturn Prop 22

HeadlineJan 13, 2021

In U.S labor news, the Service Employees International Union and drivers for ride-hailing companies are asking the California Supreme Court to invalidate Proposition 22, arguing it is unconstitutional. Prop 22, which passed in November, exempts companies like Uber and Lyft from having to classify their workers as employees rather than as independent contractors, depriving gig workers of basic wage and labor protections.
