Whenever there is a problem that needs to be solved within a company and the owners cannot do anything about it, then the only solution is to turn to people that have authority like council at the City Hall. I have been a part of such event before because I had many years of experience as a driver, so I can explain it to you the importance of this rally. First of all, what you need to understand is that every driver and employee of the company you are working for wants the same thing as you do and that is better working standards.
This means that you have to work together to achieve some changes, you alone won’t be able to do anything, but if all of you or the majority of drivers stand together, they can have a really loud message that will be heard across the country. The council at the City Hall is the only place that can make some really huge changes that will affect your future, so if you have an idea that can work, you have to make a proposal for that idea.
The more people you gather to come with you to this even the better will be for the outcome because the council will realize that you are all dealing with a great issue that needs to be solved. They know that if they don’t do something about it, you will never stop complaining and making problems for them. They don’t want to see you protest at the City Hall, so they will do anything to get rid of you all. In some cases, the problem will be solved another way that you didn’t expect it. The key thing is to work together with your co-workers and create a working environment that you are satisfied with.
In most cases, these are very big events where few hundred people are gathering to share one message with the council. The goal of these events is to make some changes to the system that will benefit the drivers in the future.
As a driver for some rideshare company such as Uber or Lyft, you will be experiencing all kinds of problems. Luckily for you, there are some meetings that are specially designed for drivers to gather and share some of their experience with each other as well as the owners of the company. These meetings are essential for a huge company such as Uber because they want to have happy and satisfied drivers.
Without these drivers, they wouldn’t exist and if the drivers are unsatisfied, they will quit, or they will be just very rude to passengers which will affect the reputation of this company. I have been working for a rideshare company for a very long time now and I have seen and attended some of these meetings. From personal experience, I can tell you that they are one of the most important meetings for drivers because we all get the chance to speak up and share our ideas that will improve our job.
A company cannot be successful if the owners don’t listen to their employees, simple as that. You never want to end up working for a company that isn’t treating you well. If you are not satisfied with your job, then you should do something about it because it will not change on its own. During these driver meetings, all the drivers are welcome to share their ideas for the future, this doesn’t mean that every idea will be accepted, but at least you have the option to affect the future. The owners of the company don’t understand all the needs that you might be having because they are not driving those cars. I was lucky enough to work for a very successful company that always listened to their employees.
Some of the biggest changes to these driving companies will happen due to these driver meetings where drivers will share their problems and find a solution to them. If your company doesn’t have these meetings, then you can be the one who starts them, people will support you because it will benefit all the employees.
