About the IDG

The Independent Drivers Guild is a joint project between the Machinists Union and independent drivers. Starting in New York, this organization will spread nationally, fighting to enhance the earning ability of all drivers while affording independent contractors traditional benefits and protections not currently available between Uber and working drivers.
