Less than two weeks after launching a petition drive to improve restroom conditions at the Los Angeles International Airport rideshare holding lot, Uber and Lyft drivers with Mobile Workers Alliance have secured additional restrooms and handwashing stations, along with the promise of future improved facilities from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) officials.
Dozens of Uber and Lyft drivers with the Mobile Workers Alliance will rally at the Los Angeles International Airport rideshare holding lot to protest the dangerous and unsanitary conditions of the restrooms provided to drivers, before delivering a petition with more than 2,000 signatures to Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) officials. Restrooms at the rideshare holding lot are disease ridden and unsanitary, with insufficient maintenance causing human waste and paper trash to accumulate quickly, often spilling out of the toilets and onto floors and surrounding areas.
