    Uber's April 2015 Partnership Agreement (For Commercial UberBLACK & UberSUV Drivers Only), also has the Modifications Clause:

    By Not Opting Out of the Binding Arbitration, Drivers give up the right to seek redress in a Civil Court, Small Claims Court, or join together in Class Action Lawsuits to hold Uber accountable. (Most Attorneys will not take on any individual driver's case against Uber on Contingency, unless they can seek Class Action Lawsuit Status for the case).

    All New Drivers should opt-out of the Binding Arbitration clause of the Partnership Agreement. There is a 30 days time limit from the time you sign the partnership agreement.

    As I understand it, All Old Drivers (even those outside the 48 markets with the new rate cuts), had to agree to the new rate schedule by clicking "I Agree" before they could go online on the Driver App. This automatically resets the 30 days opt-out window.

    The opt-out form is available at www.uberlawsuit.com
    Or email Uber's General Counsel at optout@uber.com

    All the Drivers'
    moaning & groaning,
    wailing & complaining,
    doesn't amount to anything,
    as far as Uber is concerned,
    IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT
    TO HOLD UBER ACCOUNTABLE
    IN A COURT OF LAW!

    Most Uber Drivers see my Yellow Checker Cab Avatar, & my @chi1cabby@chi1cabby username, and automatically think that I'm the Enemy, and are automatically suspicious of anything I post.
    So Please @Goober@Goober post this thread on UberDrivers Sub Reddit.
    Thank you!

    As I understand it, when Uber rolled out New Rate Cuts on Jan 9th, it made all Uber Drivers, even those outside the 48 markets that saw the rate cuts, click on "I Agree" to the new terms on the Partnership Agreement. This Automatically reset the 30 Day Window to Opt-out.
    And by inserting this New Language
    Uber is Attempting to Close the New 30 Days Opt-out Window Loophole.

    On or after Jan 9th, If you clicked "I Agree" to the changes in the Partnership Agreement on your Driver App in order to be allowed to login, you re-signed the Partnership Agreement.

    I opted out before my 30th day as an Uber driver.

    Does anyone know if I need to opt out again because of the new agreement?

    @chi1cabby@chi1cabby should we email that lawyer to make sure this info is correct, that we can indeed opt out if we agreed to the new rates?

    Please contact paralegals Elizabeth Lopez or Phil Acevedo, or associate attorneys Ben Weber and Adelaide Pagano. They can be reached at (617) 994-5800.

    And please post any info you learn on this thread. I've already texted Elisabeth Lopez about the changes in Partnership Agreement that preclude the Drivers' Right to Opt-out upon additional changes to the Agreement in the future.
