Seattle Considers Allowing Uber And Lyft Drivers To Unionize

So what do you guys think about this whole union rights for Uber and Lyft drivers? Good idea? Bad idea?

On Monday, the Seattle City Council plans to vote on a proposed law to give freelance, on-demand drivers like Mr. Creery the right to collectively negotiate on pay and working conditions, a right historically reserved for regular employees. Mr. Creery and hundreds of fellow drivers in Seattle helped push for the legislation. The hope, he said, is to give drivers more say on how much they should be paid.
