A better deal: partnering to improve platform work for all

Uber published a white paper to look at how their platform has affected their drivers, who are described as 'independent workers' in this report, and stated that they would commit to doing more and going much further to benefit these independent workers. They emphasise that platform work should offer flexible and decent earning opportunities when people want them, and protection and benefits when they need them especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this white paper, Uber attempt to set out what Uber can do to help, and how platform companies, policy makers and social representatives can come together to make a difference.
