US appeals court revives Uber, Lyft driver union case
Uber, Lyft driver union case A US offers court resuscitates a test to a Seattle law that would permit ride-hailing administration drivers to unionize.
The San Francisco-based interests court says the city doesn't have the ability to control installments between (UBER), (LYFT), and different administrations and their drivers.
The chamber argued that by allowing drivers to bargain over their pay, which is based on fares received from passengers, the city would permit them to essentially fix prices in violation of federal antitrust law.
A federal judge in Seattle last year disagreed, saying the state of Washington had specifically authorized its cities to regulate the for-hire transportation industry.
But the 9th Circuit on Friday said state law allows the city to regulate rates that companies charge to passengers, but not the fees that drivers pay to companies like Uber or Lyft in exchange for ride referrals.

At the core of the case is a Seattle law, go in 2015, that requires the city to choose an association to speak to the haggling of around 9K drivers in Seattle. The law was put on hold pending the result of a claim by the US Chamber of Commerce, which has Uber and Lyft as individuals.
The case now backpedals to a judge in Seattle to reexamine the antitrust assertion by the Chamber.
