The Guild is driven by For-Hire Vehicle workers in solidarity fighting for a better work environment. When we stand together, we will win a more dignified job, safer working conditions, and a bigger share of the profits of our labor. Get involved with some of our campaigns by first putting your name down as a supporter. If you don’t see the issue you’re most interested in, consider becoming a member of our organizing committee.
Support the NYC driver healthcare bill
36.6% of IDG members said they do not have healthcare insurance according to an internal survey. It’s appalling that in one of the most wealthy cities in America, the people responsible for the safe transportation of over 200,000 people per day don’t have access to affordable health insurance.
That’s why the New York City Council proposed bill 1301 to help drivers cover the costs of healthcare. Support this bill now.
FHV Drivers Need A Bathroom at JFK
There’s a problem that For Hire Vehicle drivers have been trying to address for years – there’s no place for drivers to use the bathroom at JFK.

Uber has been stubbornly unwilling to give our riders an easy option to tip. As a result, New York’s working drivers are losing thousands of dollars we need for vehicle upkeep and supporting our families in one of the most expensive cities in America.
