Ghanaian Uber drivers go on strike over 25% commission

A number of Uber drivers are on a sit down strike protesting a management review policy which makes the company keep 25 percent of their sales.

Scores of Uber drivers assembled at the premises of the company office in Accra in the morning of Wednesday, (April 25, 2018).

The Uber drivers argue that the percentage given to Uber is unfair and every attempt to resolve this amicably has failed hence their protest.

They added that the 25 percent retention of all transport fares is making their business unprofitable.

Uber has been operating in Ghana for about a year now.

Its relatively improved services have led to most commercial transport users resorting to it at the expense of local taxis.

The company is yet to officially comment on the matter.
