The latest twist in the Uber saga

Ride hailing giant Uber has lost its latest appeal against the employment tribunal, ruling that its drivers should technically be classed as workers.

The ruling was made in October 2016, but Uber has committed to continue appealing it.

An Uber spokesperson said: “This decision was not unanimous and does not reflect the reasons why the vast majority of drivers choose to use the Uber app. We have been granted permission to appeal to the supreme court and will do so”.
