Voice and representation for ridehailing drivers in sub-Saharan Africa: Pathways for trade union revitalization?

This paper seeks to explore the extent to which new players and nonconventional strategies shape the collective representation and voice of platform workers. Drawing on secondary sources, the paper systematically argues that traditional trade union approaches alone will not suffice in filling the representational gap. The need for a more holistic approach involving trade union responses and other players and strategies is recommended as a policy option.
