JOHANNESBURG - Uber Eats drivers are planning a nationwide strike to demand an increase in their fees on Friday.

Last month, drivers brought deliveries in Gauteng to a standstill for two days.

They were protesting against a sharp fall in their income after Uber Eats cut delivery fees.

The company made the move following pressure from restaurants.

Uber drivers are demanding a pick-up fee of R20 and then R6 rand per kilometre after the first 2kilometre's.

They currently get a pick-up fee of R10.
