    What happens when Uber drivers go on strike?

    Melbourne could find out on Tuesday, after a group called Ride Share Drivers United put out a city-wide call for disgruntled Uber drivers to "log off" all day in a protest against claimed poor pay and working conditions.

    The group argued in a statement that Uber drivers are increasingly squeezed financially and that the "contractor" arrangement Uber employs them by strips them of any bargaining power.

    A published list of demands includes an increase in minimum rates of pay, a limit to the hours a driver can work in a shift, and a softening of the deactivation policy that bans low-rated drivers from using the ride-share app....
