Based in Tukwila, WA

Drivers Union is a worker organization representing gig workers in Washington State, primarily Uber and Lyft drivers. For years gig workers have had their rights and their input into their working lives restricted. Drivers Union is one of the first organizations in the nation to provide a legislative and legal framework for drivers to have a true and legitimate voice in their work lives. Drivers have fought long and hard to establish these rights and are looking for staff who are committed to fight for social and economic justice for their communities. 

People who drive for Uber, Lyft, and other gig companies come from all over the world, and Drivers Union supports drivers in dozens of languages. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, particularly candidates who are comfortable working in multiple languages, such as Punjabi, Hindi, Chinese (Cantonese and/or Mandarin), Tigrinya, or Vietnamese.
