Calling all ride-share drivers, because the Independent Drivers Guild (IDG) is hosting their annual Drivers Appreciation Day in Queens, NY! As a quick recap, IDG is a Machinists Union affiliate that represents over 80,000 For-Hire Vehicle drivers in New York City and advocates for more than 250,000 across NY, NJ, CT, MA and IL. They are Uber, Lyft and Via workers united for a fair industry. This past year, IDG has had some amazing success when it comes to drivers’ rights, and they’re ready to celebrate those wins.
