TWU slams Uber decision
The Fair Work commission has said it won’t take a case against Uber
A major survey conducted by McKell, TWU, and TEACHO sheds light on the harsh reality faced by food delivery, rideshare, and AmazonFlex drivers. The survey, which included over 1,000 transport gig workers, reveals that the notion of ‘flexibility’ is merely an illusion. The key findings of the survey show low pay, job insecurity, and the absence of fair, safe and sustainable standards, highlighting the urgent need for transport reform.

Low Pay and Job Insecurity
The survey uncovered a shocking truth:
Safety Concerns and Work-Related Stress
Deadly pressure is affecting gig workers.
The Illusion of Flexibility
While flexibility is often cited as a major benefit of gig work, the survey revealed a different reality.
I work 7 days a week and often above 70-80 hours a week, and I barely make enough money to live.
The Need for Transport Reform
The survey results speak loud and clear, with 95% of workers expressing support for regulation and the establishment of standards for transport gig work. Urgent transport reform is needed to ensure fair pay, safe working conditions, and improved job security for transport gig workers.
