Commence greater collaboration between app-based drivers organising internationally by launching an ongoing international network: The International Alliance of App-Based Transport Workers (IAATW)

Produce a “Manifesto for App-based Transport Workers” which will be published after the convening

Drivers have been invited from 23 countries, spanning 6 different continents bringing in existing networks & unions represented countries include Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, France, Nigeria & Australia.

Grass-root Drivers & Organisers

There will be many grass-root drivers, organisers & campaigners sharing their knowledge and experience allowing us to make better decisions when developing our global manifesto.

Sharing Global Knowledge

There will be drivers present from 23 countries, giving us an insight into issues facing them locally such as consumer-facing campaigns, investor strategies, legal strategies (Workers Status, AB5) and data access, so that our manifesto is relevant to all global markets.
