Mexico Uber driver accused by a passenger of harassment demands right to defend himself

The above, after the complaint made by a young woman in León, who said she was the victim of harassment by an Uber driver last Thursday, before which the platform terminated the operator without listening to his version.

The leader of the Front of Executive Drivers of Guanajuato, Rodolfo Morgan Estrada, asked Uber to address the complaints made by users against drivers of this platform, give the right of reply and defense to the workers, before canceling them.

The above, after the complaint made by a young woman in León, who said she was a victim of harassment by an Uber driver last Thursday, before which the platform terminated the operator without verifying the user’s statements or listening to the driver.

Rodolfo Morgan indicated that in that sense Uber, without investigating, takes the sayings of the passengers as facts, without giving rise to the worker defending himself or offering his version.

“95% of those of us who are here, men and women, go out to look for the sustenance of the family, we do not go out to look for lovers or girlfriends; Yes, make it very clear to society that we are not stalkers, we are not thieves, nor are we babysitters because they forget their cell phone and blame us for keeping their cell phone when perhaps another passenger took it (…) that is

In addition, he regretted that in these cases, Uber protects the personal data of the user who reports, but not who is reported, because it violates the personal and work life of the driver without even being certain whether he acted wrong or not.

In the case of the driver denounced in León, after eight months of service, he was immediately discharged, and, according to Rodolfo Morgan, he fears for violent acts that groups or groups may carry out against him.
