A cab drivers' group has filed a petition for union representation on behalf of drivers of AAA/Yellow Cab of Tucson.

The Marana-based Tucson Hacks Association filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board on June 11, NLRB records show.

In order to gain collective-bargaining rights, the group said it first needs a ruling that the cab drivers are “employees” rather than “independent contractors,” as the company asserts.

A hearing on that issue is scheduled for Tuesday in Phoenix, the group said.
