UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

Uber Eats drivers in South Africa plan to embark on a nationwide strike on Friday, January 22 over delivery fee cuts that are drastically reducing their earnings. Drivers will remain offline on Friday, and pickets are planned outside big food outlets. A group will also protest outside the Sandton Uber office. The drivers are demanding an increase in the pick-up fee from R10 to R20, and for R6 per kilometre driven after the first two kilometres, instead of the current R4.
