Unions protest Uber app inclusion with Swiss trains
Unions and taxi drivers in Bern staged a demonstration yesterday on plans to include the ride app Uber on a joint application with Swiss Federal Railways and the Post Bus network.
Unions say federal firms should not be working with Uber. Taxi drivers say the app is illegal and is undercutting their business.
But the federal government is taking a different view. It says it supports deregulation and the digital economy.
