Uber drivers have won a battle over their employment rights.
The CCMA has ruled that Uber drivers are employees under South African law. This means that they can form unions, bargain and strike, and can refer unfair dismissal disputes to the CCMA.
The ruling will come as a relief to many Uber drivers, who have sought to engage with Uber over unsafe working conditions and arbitrary dismissals. Until now Uber has argued that the drivers are independent contractors who have no rights under SA labour law.
This follows similar rulings in Britain, the EU and the US.
