Taxi firms face claims over drivers' rights in wake of Uber case
Drivers say Green Tomato, A2B and Blacklane did not provide holiday pay or minimum wage
The battle for rights for gig economy workers is stepping up as the union behind legal action against Uber targets three taxi firms that say their drivers are not entitled to holiday pay or the minimum wage.
Green Tomato Cars, which calls itself “London’s green and ethical car service”, luxury airport transfer specialist Blacklane and Birmingham’s A2B are facing claims from former drivers who say they are “workers” and not independent contractors as the car firms insist.
