Uber better hurry the hell up with its autonomous self-driving fleet of cars before they end up having to treat all their drivers as employees instead of independent contractors.

The case concerned two individual Uber drivers, but the general union GMB actually brought the case to the tribunal. "This is a monumental victory that will have a hugely positive impact on driversآ… and for thousands more in other industries where bogus self-employment is rife," the union’s legal director said in a statement.
