Uber Class Action
Maurice Blackburn has filed a class action against Uber on behalf of participants in the taxi, hire car, limousine and charter vehicle industry. This class action was introduced in response to losses suffered by drivers, licence owners, and operators, when Uber entered the Australian market.

CPVV is integrally involved in the COVID-19 Taskforce, requesting the public to report to it any driver cases of COVID-19 - and removing these drivers from work until medically cleared. CPVV undertook to find out the status of personal protective equipment (PPE) for booking service providers (BSP) and whether it will be funded by the government, by early next week.
Updates will be posted on the CPVV website, with the call centre responding to enquiries most likely by email due to phone delays. CPVV is encouraging BSPs, operators and workers for information through regular surveys sent to them weekly.
The questions that were covered during the meeting were:
Q: How do we notify CPVV about a driver suspected to have COVID-19?
A: Via the safety mailbox – mention COVID-19 and their DC number and name in an email to email@example.com.
Q: What stage will trains and trams be stopped?
A: There is no guarantee public transport will stop at this stage.
Q: Can non-permanent residents access supplementary income?
A: CPVV will provide a link for clarity around this.
Q: Are there any changes to the $1 levy or invoicing of the drivers?
A: At this stage, there is no change.
CPVV’s video conferences will be held weekly. BSPs can request to be included in these meetings by answering the survey at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5515934/CPVV-skype-meeting-survey.
