About Us

We aim to represent all UK private hire drivers in the UK. We are honest and hard working people who are often badly treated by employers and the regulator.

With a strong collective voice we will be heard, we will demand change and will make a better future for all private hire drivers.

Our industry is changing rapidly but drivers have a weak voice. Our incomes are in crisis with drivers falling below the poverty line as global corporations move in to exploit drivers at an unprecedented scale.

Our regulators do nothing to protect and seem intent on discrimination and making operating conditions more difficult than ever before. The human cost is great with many families under severe strain, absent parents working 90 hours a week and debt levels rising.

We say enough is enough.

History

The UPHD began in December of 2015 when Yaseen Aslam and James Farrar launched an ambitious legal campaign against Uber.

This was to prove that Uber drivers in London were not simply self-employed, but instead were workers who are entitled to basic rights like the minimum wage and holiday pay.

They have been battling with operators and licensing authorities across the UK and standing up for drivers ever since.

Demands

Our demands of the Operator (i.e. Uber, Addison Lee, etc.)

Our demands of the Licensing Authority or Regulator (i.e. City Councils, Transport for London)
