20 Mar Press Release: Status of Independant Drivers
Tribal Rides International, Inc. (OTCPK: XNDA) reacts to California Court ride share ruling on Proposition 22. The continuing legal status of independent contractors has no impact on Tribal Rides drivers.
LOS ANGELES and MISSION VIEJO, Calif., March 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via Investor Wire –
Last week’s ruling by a California appeals court upholding Proposition 22’s classification of ride share drivers as independent contractors and not employees will have no impact on Tribal Rides International, Inc.’s (“Tribal Rides” or the “Company”) (OTCPK: XNDA) Mobility-As-A-Service (MAAS) software solution, according to company CEO Joseph Grimes.
The Court’s decision, expected to be appealed to the California Supreme Court, was issued March 13 upholding 2020 Proposition 22’s drivers classification, but eliminated the requirement that collective bargaining could only occur by amendment requiring a seven-eighths majority vote of the Legislature.
Regardless of how California ultimately decides this issue, explained Grimes, the Tribal Rides ridesharing apps and platform will be unaffected as its participating drivers are more aptly described as partners or independent contractors rather than employees.
