California considering bill to support Gig Unions

Posted by Lacy Fletcher on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 Under: Gig Economy

Uber drivers may soon have the right to unionize in California. 

AB 1727, or the California 1099 Self-Organizing Act, would radically alter rules surrounding independent contractors and eliminate some of the very benefits of working for yourself. Under the bill, groups as small as 10 contractors could choose to negotiate together. In the case of Internet platforms, this could mean that some companies are required by law to meet and negotiate separately with as many as 10,000 different groups of contractors.

Humboldt county is largely supported by a gig economy. Several Humboldt residents do not have a traditional job and generate income by having several gigs. We'll keep you posted on this bill.
