Nick is the lead applicant in the Uber class action. Nick’s father drove and owned cabs and he then too eventually drove and owned his own taxis, as well as running cars and licences. He worked hard his entire life for this, but when Uber came into Australia and operated illegally to capture the market, including not paying fees and not being regulated, his life and work changed forever. Nick has seen first-hand the impacts of this not just for him, but for thousands of drivers and their families nationwide. Nick is a firm believer that the Uber class action has only been possible because thousands of people just like him have been able to come together through a funded class action to take on a giant like Uber, something that would never have been possible on his own. “The class action has only been possible because thousands of people just like me have been able to come together through a funded class action to take on a giant like Uber,” said Nick.
