This really sums up how drivers feel.

Seattle is looking to see if the TNCs can unionize.

UNIONIZE???? Surely you jest! At a regular company I used to work for, someone suggested unionizing the office help, they no longer work there and nothing was ever said again. You can't unionizeUBER DRIVERS it's not a union shop. They already take 20% how much more do you want taken out for union dues, medical, dental, eye coverage, prescription, legal representation, legal advice, etc...

uber drivers can accept tips now with VUGO
Your problem with this is that riders, who have been 'Pavlovian-conditioned' not to tip, will just rate you bad for even broaching the subject.

You already get underpaid, and now your gonna get under-rated because she/he says "you are a mean UBER driver asking me to treat you like I expect to be treated at my job, with respect and pay commensurate with effort and skill applied".

And then she/he continues "If I wanted a cab, I would have just called one, waited forever, paid a fair price to haul my human a$$ somewhere important to me, then felt 'Pavlovian-conditioned' to tip THEM, because, they're a cab. You, Uber person, not so much. Now crank that radio till your ears bleed, and hold my beer, 'cause we are gonna party tonite 'cause I saved so much letting you have the honor of driving my human a$$ safely somewhere important to me, 'ugly-cheap' !"

"I will rate you like the fare you work for, which surely translates to the value you place on yourself, 'ugly-cheap'."

WARNING *** You may not be able to use this word 'ugly cheap' in scrabble, just sayin.***

(Irony is dripping down my chin, onto my clean white shirt as I type this.)

Thanks for reading.

Easy solution, no tip 1*. That's the way you fight back with ubers tipping and their dysfunctional rating system.

Unfortunately, they on board kool aid drinkers so fast, difficult to keep everyone trained and on board with doing it.
You are removing the ability for other drivers to differentiate between non-tippers and actual terrible pax.

That's the idea. Why would you pick up a non tipper? If all the 1* were cancelled on and only tippers were picked up, uber we need to make some type of change. It addresses the ranking system as well as the tipping issue.
Because something is better than nothing. If you stop picking up non-tippers, you'd get a pick up once every 4-6 hours. We both know it's impossible to get every uber driver doing this, so it's pointless and only hurts you.

Bro, ur not 'hurting' you.
Uber is on a landslide of soon to be shareholder growth and value gross, BUT the lack of reasonable fares and tips is the crux of the driver issue, and will remain one, till SOMETHING drastic happens.
I like your idea.
Just sayin
From Uber side, nothing good will happen before their IPO. They need to show high growth rate to convince investors the company is not over-valued. Who cares if drivers starve to death before then?

You can't have your cake and eat it too. The only way to bring about change is if the good pax suffer with the non tipping bad.

Did you see "Braveheart?" Lot's of good Scot's died to bring about change. Fortunately were not taking about death of good people, just about them not getting a ride & Uber PAX having to pony up cab fare. After a few cab fares pax will gladly want a tip button on Uber.

Almost forgot...FREEDOM!

I'm so glad the tipping issue is alive. I was starting to wonder if everyone was ok with this whole non-tipping thing. UBER couldn't give 2 shits about tipping. I don' think they even look at this board.

This board is a great way to vent but goes nowhere important.
