KUALA LUMPUR: E-hailing driver associations will work together to fight for their rights after a rideshare company terminated or deactivated the accounts of a number of its drivers.

Penggerak Malaysia E-Hailing Drivers Community (KPePM) president Mohd Nazri Sahat said they will form a special team comprising driver associations with the assistance of MCA’s Civil Society Coordination Bureau.

“The aim is to represent drivers in airing their grievances whether with the e-hailing companies or with the government,” Nazri said after a dialogue session with e-hailing drivers here.

KPePM chairman Zulkefli Zainuddin said about 250 drivers nationwide have had their services terminated by a rideshare company.

MCA Civil Society Coordination Bureau chief Ng Kian Nam meanwhile said the bureau would help in issuing an appeal to e-hailing companies which terminated the services of the drivers.

“We received many complaints that they have been unfairly banned.

“We found many legal issues where drivers do not get proper protection as they are being banned without being given a platform to be heard and to appeal.

“The bureau will also invite the Transport Minister to attend a dialogue with the affected drivers to listen to their problems,” Ng said.
