(EL MONTE , Calif.)–The California App-Based Drivers’ Association (CADA) met in El Monte, California on Tuesday, to formalize its affiliation with Teamsters Local 986. CADA was established earlier this year in an effort to unite drivers who operate under smartphone-based ridesharing applications, including Uber. Uber drivers have long expressed frustration in what they perceive as unsafe, deceptive, and unfair business practices mandated by Uber. “The company’s manifest indifference to the plight of its drivers, coupled with a series of misleading attacks on legislation aimed at protecting driver, consumer, and public safety ultimately led drivers to form CADA , ”said CADA leadership council member Lotfi Ben Yeder.
