(OAKLAND, Calif.) –– Today, the Teamsters Union and Lyft drivers will file legal objections to a class-action lawsuit settlement which would continue to misclassify Lyft employees in California as independent contractors.

The objectors, who also plan to intervene in the lawsuit, will file their objections today in federal district court in San Francisco before Judge Vince Chhabria.

The proposed settlement results from a class-action lawsuit brought in 2013 by two Lyft drivers who sought to be recognized as employees rather than independent contractors.
