CUE Weekly Headline Update
The CUE conference in Denver is now past and the feedback from attendees has been amazing. More than 300 attendees met earlier this week learning about all the latest developments in labor and employee relations, and headed home with solid ideas for building a positive workplace environment. While the CUE staff travels home and spends a little time with our families, here are some links to end the week.
Thanks to all our speakers, attendees and volunteer leaders who truly helped us in Reaching the Summit of Positive Employee Relations!

CAN UBER DRIVERS STRIKE?
Some Uber drivers are pushing for a strike this weekend. According to a Facebook events page, strike organizers are calling on Uber to raise rates by 60 percent nationwide, add tip options, raise the cancellation fee to $7, and raise the minimum fare to $7. The strike will test whether or not Uber drivers can successfully organize meaningful collective action, even though the company insists they are not employees.
