Demand an End to the Carjackings

Today, we demand that ride-hailing and delivery app providers work with us to address the recent increase in carjackings and other criminal incidents. Dozens of rideshare drivers and delivery workers have been targeted as victims of carjackings in Chicago in the last few months alone.

These common-sense improvements will protect both drivers and their passengers from ensuring safe transit during the COVID-19 pandemic:

 

  • Passenger verification
  • Mandatory passenger profile photos
  • Mandatory mask-wearing selfie when ordering a ride
  • Credit card fraud verification
  • Stolen account warning
  • Police zone warnings in-app
  • Passenger background check
  • Panic button
  • Special crime victim insurance
  • Increased penalties for assaults
  • In-vehicle cameras
  • Safety violation charges

Every rideshare and delivery driver and passenger in Chicago needs to know that we are specifically being targeted for these crimes. As such, we ask for your help and solidarity in fostering a safer industry. Sign our petition here.

Drivers' Bill of Rights Petition

Call To Action! To End the war on New York City For-Hire Vehicle TLC Drivers.
Sign our petition to put a stop to this unfair treatment of app-based companies.

App-based companies plan to follow Lyft’s lead in locking drivers out of its app at times and places with low demand. Starting Tuesday, September 17th, 2019, Uber will lock drivers out of its platform at times and locations that few riders are requesting trips.

Sign our petition to put a stop to this unfair treatment of app-based companies.

Sign the petition calling on Congress to extend unemployment compensation during COVID-19.

We have some bad news: As it stands, the $600/week Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC) benefits are set to expire on July 26. This will leave thousands of drivers without the relief needed to cover monthly expenses.

Join us in demanding that Congress extend Pandemic Unemployment Compensation beyond July 26, ensuring that NY Drivers have adequate relief to cover expenses through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, the vast majority of drivers are only receiving $200/week in Unemployment Assistance, covering less than half of their usual earnings. Without the $600 PUC relief payments, most drivers will not have enough to cover NYC rent, food, car insurance, and all other monthly costs.

We must call on Congress to take action immediately to extend PUC benefits. Drivers across NY are juggling car insurance, car payments, plus rent and groceries, all without their usual, full paychecks. To avoid further the health financial crisis for more than 100,000 New York City drivers, we are advocating Congress continue critical relief until regular business can resume.

Sign the Petition Today

As always, we will keep you updated as we receive more information.

Thank you and stay safe,

Independent Drivers Guild
