Chaque vendredi, dans sa revue de presse, Maddyness vous propose une sélection d’articles sur un sujet qui a retenu l’attention de la rédaction. Cette semaine, l'algorithme d'Uber.

UK Uber drivers are taking the algorithm to court

L’actualité

A group of U.K. Uber drivers has launched a legal challenge against the company’s subsidiary in the Netherlands. The complaints relate to access to personal data and algorithmic accountability. Uber drivers and Uber Eats couriers are being invited to join the challenge, which targets Uber’s use of profiling and data-fueled algorithms to manage gig workers in Europe. Platform workers involved in the case are also seeking to exercise a broader suite of data access rights baked into EU data protection law. Lire l’article de TechCrunch

Was your Uber, Lyft fare high because of algorithm bias?

Les dessous de l’algorithme

Requesting an Uber or Lyft to a lower-income community? That could cost you. That is the finding of a study that analyzed transportation and census data in Chicago to see whether there was a disparity in what passengers were charged based on location. The team out of George Washington University in Washington, D.C., assessed more than 100 million trips between November 2018 and December 2019. What they discovered was that ride-hailing companies charged a higher price per mile for a trip if either the pick-up point or destination had a higher percentage of non-white residents, low-income residents or high-education residents.

UK Uber drivers face October wait over employee rights ruling

Le contexte

Thousands of Uber drivers in Britain will have to wait until October to learn whether they have succeeded in proving the ride-hailing company is their employer. In a landmark case at the UK Supreme Court Uber is appealing against a previous tribunal ruling that its drivers are its employees, entitling them to Britain’s minimum wage and holiday pay. If the case is upheld, the GMB union, which represents drivers, said Uber could be forced to pay drivers £12,000 each in compensation and the case would have wider implications for millions of people working in the gig economy.

Uber drivers have a chance to reset the rules

Pendant ce temps-là au Canada…

The Supreme Court of Canada upheld a ruling by the Ontario Court of Appeal. It decided that Uber’s harsh arbitration terms are unconscionable and invalid, partly because of the vast inequality of bargaining power between a multibillion-dollar global company and a lone driver. The lower court also established that Uber’s arbitration clause unlawfully contracted out provincial labour laws, as law professor David Doorey observes. If Uber drivers in Ontario are reclassified as employees or dependent contractors, such as Foodora couriers, they become eligible to unionize and potentially increase their bargaining power.

Driving is a tough gig and workers are uber-deserving of their rights

Le plaidoyer

Does driving an Uber offer freedom from the drudgery of a nine-to-five job? Or is lugging around a Deliveroo backpack the modern-day equivalent of the dark satanic mill? The gig economy has fans and critics aplenty. The Supreme Court will soon decide where it stands. Lire l’édito de Simon Duke dans The Times
