Over the past four years, Uber has amended or released new TOS agreements for its drivers, and in 2015 and 2017, when the last one will be released on November 25, 2019. Most of these updates have been swiped via the pilot app and email notifications. In order to continue to access the platform, a driver must accept the new terms and conditions. Most drivers are out there to make money, so they really don`t have time to fully read these long legal documents, they usually sign it electronically and earn their living again. The opt-out only works if you`ve always unsubscribed. There is a clause that states that if you do not log out before you are still bound by this agreement. Uber has been involved in dozens of lawsuits since its inception just a decade ago. If you are interested in all group actions against Uber, please click on the following link. www.classaction.com/uber/settlement/ As you can clearly see at the beginning of the second page of the Uber agreement, he says, “You will not be subject to retaliation if you use your right to opt out of this arbitration decision.” What are you going to do? Are you going to unsubscribe? Is arbitration worth your time and money? Have you chosen not to make any previous agreements or updates? 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. 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. 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! 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. Uber will not disable drivers if they opt out of the deal. It`s your legal right to do so, but if you don`t log out, you lose the right to join future group actions and get paid! 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.
