1,000 Uber Employees Reportedly Sign Petition Demanding The Return Of Kalanick

Since Buzzfeed is the source of this story we should take this with a large chunk of salt.

Despite the overwhelming evidence that Kalanick needed to go, more than 1,000 current Uber employees have now signed a petition demanding the board reinstate him, Axios reports. According to screenshots obtained by BuzzFeed, the petition says employees “need to revolt this” and that Kalanick was an “inspiration” who can “come back strong as Travis 2.0.” Recode reports that the petition says the board must “hear from Uber employees that it’s made the wrong decision in pressuring Travis to leave and that he should be reinstated in an operational role.
