The Massachusetts Coalition for Independent Work is dedicated to securing flexibility in scheduling, providing new benefits — including healthcare stipends, paid sick time, paid family & medical leave and occupational accident insurance — and guaranteeing an earnings floor for all app-based drivers in Massachusetts.

We’re banding together with drivers, community partners and elected officials to protect the flexibility and independence that drivers value, while expanding their benefits.

Overall, we seek to expand opportunities for workers across all demographics, ethnicities, and backgrounds; strengthen transportation and delivery equity that helps all communities grow and thrive; help brick-and-mortar small businesses, restaurants, and retailers compete in an increasingly online economy; and protect those communities that rely on independent workers and app-based services for their essential needs.

The Massachusetts Coalition for Independent Work will be advocating for the ballot question through its affiliated entity, Flexibility and Benefits for Massachusetts Drivers.
