Uber and Lyft drivers are celebrating May Day by getting vaccinated at their union.
King County Executive Dow Constantine is expected to attend the Drivers Union Pop-Up Vaccination Clinic taking place on Saturday, May 1 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M at the Teamsters Union Hall in Tukwila.
The International Workers Day event comes at a time when drivers in Seattle are celebrating the implementation of the strongest labor standards for Uber and Lyft drivers in the nation, including a minimum wage, paid sick leave during COVID pandemic, and new legal protections against unfair terminations.
This is the fourth Pop-Up vaccination event organized by the Drivers Union. The event is organized in partnership with the Somali Health Board.
