Uber Drivers Protest in Santa Monica

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Drivers who have worked for Uber, the company whose app allows

customers to request car service from their smartphone, protested Tuesday

outside the firm's offices in Santa Monica. The Teamsters union organized

the protest and drivers said their objections include concerns that they could

be assigned to less lucrative roles with the company if they do not acquire

new vehicles, according to CBS Los Angeles.
