Don’t use Uber or Lyft on May 8th. And don’t be a fucking scab either. This strike is really important.

I heard Lyft is better than Uber because they take less from their drivers' earnings. Is that true?

How do you realistically stop scabs from undermining strikes on work"places" like Uber?

If anything, a mass strike only benefits the scabs more as they'll get less competition and jumping in to cash-in as a scab is almost effortless.

People need to use the app to order rides, and when someone offers them a ride, don’t get in the car, but put their name on a “Scab list.” This tactic was used during the early stages of the American War for Independence where those that didn’t boycott British goods had their names put on lists and were socially ostracized.
The worker’s are striking, and people sympathetic to the strike are boycotting the company.

That sort of boycott makes more sense than not interacting with a company during a strike, which is a pretty dumb strategy when you 🤔 about it.

don't use uber or lyft
Do use them during the strike. Get the shortest/cheapest routes you can to increase the load on their servers and give 1-star reviews to any scab drivers.

The stated intent of the strike is to slow down the service. Boycotting is counter to that because it reduces demand.

Also tbh the interesting thing about this is that it is a craft union general strike: which is something that is very 1910s.

Only if they're able to service people and the charges go through. If they fail to pick you up and you cancel (then contest the charges with your card company or bank account) you can fuck with them on a large scale for failing to render service.

The only way this works is if the majority of uber users were also super class conscious and go out of their way to enforce the boycott. We live in an era where people can't be bothered to stop using google and cab service users must be on the extreme end of comfort-seeking since they're so willing to trade mass transit for convenience.
It might work, but my outlook on this is pretty pessimist.

Not to mention the classcucks who will look for people on the list exclusively to "own le libs".

While you're not wrong, that is far too impractical to do on a large scale. Also I think it would be fraud. Also also a lot of countries don't hold companies accountable for unfulfilled services due to industrial action. Still, a boycott not only hurts Uber in of itself but also hurts the Scabs since they will have far less work.

Its a good start but the union organizing this will stab the drivers in the back with a shitty negotiation. The organizers of this strike seem to be from upper middle class, socdem backgrounds much of the same ilk as the treacherous UAW and AFT union heads. Workers need to learn that the unions no longer represent them and that they need to form rank and file committees guided by a marxist vanguard party, work only the SEP is doing.

Christian Campbell

Well in the UK they are represented by the based IWGB: which is perhaps the most militant TU in the business atm. Last time there was an Uber strike they caused massive traffic disruption by blocking roads and blockaded the Uber Headquaters in the UK with protesters.

And that was just a London-based one and just with Uber. With a general shutdown like the one planned I imagine it's gonna be carnage.
Also lol "they need to do this specific thing which only my org is doing". And here we go again with trots hating trade unions.

It doesn't matter what theatrics they made the workers perform, what matters are the tangible results. The workers gained nothing from the "based IWGB", just like workers all over the world have gained nothing from the unions in the past 30 years. The role of unions is to act as the labor arm of the "left" bourgeois political parites. All you need to do is look at the massive amounts of workers dues that are used to fund the campaigns of the very politicians who enact further repressive measures against the workers.

The Matamoros workers understood this which is why the greatest strikes of the past year have been organic strikes unshackled by the unions. The Yellow Vests for example were organized outside of the union apparatus.

What's this supposed to mean? Do you not support these workers?

If you think they are anything akin to labour organising you don't know shit.
Labor organizing means workers striking en masse, this can be done with or without a union. The majority of Yellow Vest strikers are workers who are setting forth their demands for higher living standards and an end to austerity which cuts across all sorts of trades and factories.

You don't know fucking shit you trot, do some research first.
What tangible gains have been won by the IWGB for workers? The very best unions now are so emasculated that all they can do is win court cases which slow down the exploitation of workers. And the point I make is about unions as a whole. Due to the globalization of productive capital, unions, which operate under a nation-state basis of legality can no longer advance the interests of the working class. The best they can do is appeal to nationalism to retain jobs at the expense of a worker's class brothers and sisters overseas.

Workers need to build their own rank and file unions with an international perspective and with the emergence of the Matamoros workers and the French Yellow Vests, we are seeing huge qualitiative steps in that direction. The task now is to organize workers to ally themselves with a vanguard capable of leading in that perspective and as far as I can tell, no one else but the WSWS and the parties it represents are headed towards that direction.

More than every trot in the fucking world thought it was the birth of some radical revolution rather than just contextualising it as another wildcat strike. From their airchairs they wished them onwards and at-best posted links incessantly about it. I remember some random f posting a thread on it every single fucking week for the entire thing.

Which is all lovely and nice until you realise that the Yellow Vests aren't performing industrial action. It is not akin to labour organising.

They managed to secure the first collective bargaining agreement for precariat gig economy workers in British history. If that ain't enough for you fuck knows what is.

This actually makes no sense if you had any understanding of marxist trade unionism.

They explicitly do not do this, considering a significant part of their core base is BAME.
Workers need to build their own rank and file unions with an international perspective
And a global simultaneous strike involving rank-and-file craft unions isn't that? Also lol at the Gilets Jaunes having an "international perspective" considering a lot of their ideology is nationalist (not saying that's a bad thing in any way)
and with the emergence of the Matamoros workers and the French Yellow Vests, we are seeing huge qualitiative steps in that direction.
<A Wildcat strike & a set of mass protests against austerity are the coming of the glorious trotskyite revolution
Man you would have loved 2008-2012.
The task now is to organize workers to ally themselves with a vanguard capable of leading in that perspective and as far as I can tell, no one else but the WSWS and the parties it represents are headed towards that direction.
And, urhm, well, there it is: "The workers need to do this specific thing advocated by my trotskyite sect is advocating and they can only do it with my trotskyite sect". How fucking predictable, yeah nah. In the UK we've seen this shit before, we remember the SWP: it always falls apart because trotskyism is a braindead ideology with no actual ability to organise without actually becoming a fucking nothingburger in said organisation.

Yes because a radical militant trade union from the UK set-up in 2012, founded as an offshoot of the IWW, obviously wants to be associated with the German Social Democrats of the 1930s. It's not like it has a broad connotation of anti-fascism or anything.
I mean they are obviously just milquetoast social democrats which is why they launched industrial action against the social democratic Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

I see you are too stupid to argue the facts.

Uber drivers ARE self employed. They provide their own vehicle, set their own hours, decide which clients to accept, and can't be controlled in any way by Uber.

Uber drivers are capitalists who exist only to undercut the employment of taxi drivers.

Pro uber driver = pro capitalism and anti-employee

Julian Wilson
Julian Wilson

Considering that A) a lot of regular cabbies own their cab B) set their own hours and C) uber does determine their wage, your argument doesn't make any sense.
Also apart from the weird fetishisation of employment, being self-employed isn't the same as being a capitalist: Marx literally fucking says this.

Carter Reyes

Non-agricultural societies have the sickle in their flag because the worker's movement is about worldwide solidarity you fucking moron, and that includes foreign peasant economies, so no, the anti-communist three arrows are not a "way less retarded" symbol than the sickle.

Jaxon Martin
Jaxon Martin

Except the sickle was adopted as a specific thing to the Russian communist movement because of its peasant base: your bullshit argumentation about "worldwide solidarity" is so contrived I wonder how far up your arse you had to pull it from.

Carter Lopez
Carter Lopez

The "international solidarity" between peasants and workers is the interpretation most people have of the hammer and sickle, and they do not interpret it as a russian-specific symbol, since it is used by pretty much all ML parties in the world.

Even if you take the historical meaning as being the absolute standard, adopting a soviet symbol is more appropriate than a known anti-communist symbol.

Christian Gray
Christian Gray

It's not a known anti-communist symbol though, literally the only connotation it has in the UK is anti-fascism: being adopted by the Anti-Nazi League, which was a group founded by trotskyite communists. Holy hell how many times do I fucking have to say it you smoothbrain.
