Uber drivers can now unionise after ride biz recognises GMB, one of the UK's largest trade unions

Uber has consistently lost billions every year because they're more interested in gaining market share than actually operating a profitable business.

Their plan was to first usurp taxi companies to get local monopolies, and then replace all the drivers with self driving cars. They foolishly believed the hype that self-driving cars would be here by now and consequentially Uber is basically fucked, they've burnt up far too much money to ever be in a position to repay the debt.

The next few years are going to have some prolonged death rattles from Uber when the venture capital people finally realize they've been duped.
