Air Conditioner Contractor Speeds Up His Work With Uber, Uber Drivers
A fast-talking contractor is going to be very, very busy over the next several weeks.
The air conditioning business of Bryan Daugherty is a prime example.
“I’m the guy who is going after the Uber drivers in Los Angeles,” Daughey told me.
“The reason I’m doing it is because the air conditioning company, which is the one that was responsible for all of the people getting in to the convention center, decided they’re going to take a $1 million fine and leave.”
Daugher is the head of Daughers Air Conditioning, a company that provides the company with air conditioning systems for hotel guests.
“They’ve basically given us a notice that they are not going to renew our contract,” Daughherty said.
“And they’re doing it without giving us any kind of compensation.”
The company has been at the forefront of Uber’s drive to build a fleet of air conditioning vehicles.
Daugy said the company has already started installing air conditioning units at some of the company’s hotel venues, but he’s hoping that the new contract will provide some additional incentive to get people to use their air conditioners instead of the more common Uber-owned units.
“We’re a little bit behind on that,” Daghney said.
Uber’s new contract comes just a few weeks after Uber announced that it would be laying off its air conditioning workers, with some contractors having left to work for Lyft.
The company’s air conditioner workforce will remain in Los Angelas as it works on building new air conditioning technology.
Daughy said he is confident that his new company can do the same.
“It’s not a big deal,” he said.
“[Uber] is doing this for them to get in the limelight, to get more publicity.”
Daughhey said that while his company is not directly responsible for the air condition company’s decisions, it will make sure the air conditioned workers are getting paid their fair share.
“If they don’t get paid, we’re going in there and we’re taking care of that for them,” Dagherty said of his company’s contract with Uber.
“That’s the way it’s supposed to be.”
