(AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File) (Nam Y. Huh)THE HAGUE, Netherlands — (AP) — A court in Amsterdam ruled Monday that Uber drivers fall under the Dutch taxi drivers' collective labor agreement — meaning they are entitled to the same employment benefits as taxi drivers. The court ordered Uber to pay the FNV 50,000 euros ($59,000) in damages for not adhering to the collective labor agreement. FNV said the ruling means Uber drivers are entitled to more pay and have more rights if they are ill or have their employment terminated. The Dutch court decision follows a similar ruling by Britain's High Court in February that said Uber drivers are "workers" and not self-employed.wftv.com
