A federal judge in Seattle has temporarily blocked the city’s first-in-the-nation law that attempts to allow Uber, Lyft and taxi drivers to unionize, The Seattle Times reported. Seattle’s law, passed in 2015, allows human cloud firms Uber and Lyft as well as taxi drivers — who are categorized as independent contractors, not employees — to form a union and collectively bargain for things like pay, benefits and working conditions.
