After Ola drivers called their strike off on Wednesday, now Uber drivers have also ended their protest after four days of the strike on Thursday. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) transport division had called the strike for the drivers. 

Around 80,000 drivers of both the companies demanded better payment. The drivers called off the strike after the companies agreed to their demands. 

The president of the MNS transport division, Sanjay Naik claimed that the strike was called off because the companies had assured to look into the drivers’ demands.

An Uber spokesperson told The Indian Express,

We met a delegation of driver partners and continue to engage with the driver partners on a one-on-one basis. We have heard their concerns and taken note of the feedback.”

According to the cab companies Ola and Uber, they have decided to ponder upon the other demands of the drivers as well, which consist absorption of blacklisted drivers and adding a sticker of the name of the company in Marathi on the cabs.

A source from the cab company Uber said that the officials have heard their suggestions from the drivers and will answer to the demand of an increment in their payment within 15 days.

Despite the strike being called off on Thursday, the daily travellers faced a dilemma and were affected by the scarcity of available cabs.
