As driver protests intensified in Delhi yesterday, Uber got an injunction which restrained two local taxi unions from interfering with the running of app-based cabs from the Delhi High Court, reports the Hindustan Times. Drivers from Ola and Uber were on strike protesting the reduced incentives and low earnings. Uber accused the Sarvodaya Driver Association of Delhi (SDAD) and Rajdhani Tourist Drivers’ Union of hampering its operations and blocked drivers who had not joined the protests. The company added that the union members and striking members removed mobile phones which were given to drivers. The court also restrained protesting drivers from staging a dharna outside Uber's office in Delhi. "We welcome this court order, which prohibits unions, their leaders and anybody else from obstructing the activities of Uber driver partners as they go about their business. We hope it will enable drivers to get back behind the wheel, something many have been telling us they wish to do. We're sorry that our service has been disrupted and for any inconvenience this has caused," Uber said in a statement to MediaNama. Similar injunction last month Note that Uber had gotten a similar injunction in Hyderabad last month during the driver protests last month, as indicated by this Business Standard report. It had got an injunction from the district court which stopped the Telangana Cab Drivers and Owners Association (TCDOA) and the Telangana State Cabs Association (TSCA) from interfering with drivers who chose not to protest.
