Uber loses UK workers rights appeal

London (England), Nov 11 (ANI): A British tribunal upheld the decision for providing workers right to the drivers of one of the largest taxi service of the world, Uber. The rights include minimum wage and paid vacation time.

Uber lost the appeal against the regulators decision of not entitling Uber drivers with workers rights. Uber demands that the drivers should be considered as independent contractors similar to the traditional British black cab drivers seen in the London.

This defeat could be a fatal blow for the cab service as those benefits would cut severely into their profit margins. Britain is Uber's most important market.

According to the estimates, London alone constitutes half of the net sales for Uber in the entire continent. Uber is likely to challenge the verdict in the upper body and the matter could go to the Supreme Court.
