The Independent Drivers Guild protects, supports, and connects New York’s working drivers.
The Independent Drivers Guild is a joint project between Machinists Union District 15 and platform drivers. The Guild gathers all drivers together for a unified voice and to work together for common interests.
As an affiliate of District 15 of the Machinists Union, the Independent Drivers Guild will fight for Uber drivers to:
Secure a seat at the table with authorized management in monthly meetings with a Council of Drivers.
Provide deactivation protection through hearings in front of independent panels.
Provide drivers with professional training, legal assistance, financial planning, roadside assistance, and community support.
Improve the working lives of professional drivers through cost savings, access to low-cost insurance, representation against unfair fines and violations, benefit packages for drivers, and fight for legislation to fund services and benefits for Guild members.
Political and legislative representation, with the Guild fighting for policies that best help drivers earn a living.
