This is the first page of the agreement. In the middle of the bold page, you`ll see that Uber is called a technology company as opposed to a transportation company. They claim to be a technological platform because their legal problems are just beginning with the CA AB5 act. Under this law and in order to comply with the ABC test under AB5, Uber will soon reveal the passenger locations to all drivers, as well as the length of the journey and revenues! Would he have done it anyway without the threat of AB5? I doubt it, but I see this new development as a big positive for CA pilots. I hope it will be the norm across the country. If Lyft follows Uber in this case, it won`t be seen! Compelling arbitration agreements were formalized in 1925, allowing two companies of roughly equal size to resolve their disputes outside the courtroom, this saves both parties a lot of money and time, but since then, the main use of arbitration is to require employees, customers, patients and other relatively fragile parties to make their right to legal action (or to participate in a class action) as a condition for getting to work, needing care or simply for Uber. Instead, persons crammed into binding agreements are obliged to argue their cases successively in a privatized courtroom, where the arbitrator (usually a former judge) is often a contractor for the company whose conduct has given rise to the complaint. Hello: I sent the automated email to Uber so I could unsubscribe and here`s what I received. I found it really strange in what it was the automated response. Please read and advise. Here is my email: I opt for the arbitration agreement in its entirety. My name is Demetrios Eliades, the phone number connected to my account (262) 271-5264, and I live in Racine.
And here`s an automated response: emails to [email protected] are only monitored for arbitration provision opt-outs by American drivers. Do you need help with something else? Visit help.uber.com or open the app and go to the “HELP” screen. To opt out of Uber`s text messages, type the word “STOP” to 89203 using the mobile device that receives the messages. If you decide not to receive any more email updates from Uber, you can click on the “Cancel” link at the end of each email. Within 30 days of signing the new agreement, you can send an email with your intention to opt out of this arbitration decision or send a letter. If you don`t, you`ll be locked up! To maintain your legal right to charge Uber as an individual or member of the class action, you must opt for a mandatory arbitration procedure. In simple terms, no! I have opposed any new modified Uber and Lyft agreements have sent my way over the past four years and I am still active on both platforms as a driver and as a passenger. Uber`s agreement makes it clear that an opt-out did not result in retaliation from Uber in the form of a deactivation. I signed the previous agreements and continued, but on that occasion I decided to read the 27 pages. It took me a while, but I`m glad I made it. During the process, I noticed glaring changes in older versions. Not only will I mention a few, but I will also tell you how you can opt out of Uber`s mandatory arbitration decision.
I`ve done it with all the previous Uber tos tos without consequences or retaliation, I`m still a driver on the platform.
