Uber says to appeal against Dutch court decision.

AMSTERDAM, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Uber (UBER.N) drivers are employees, not contractors, and so entitled to greater workers' rights under local labour laws, a Dutch court ruled on Monday, handing a setback to the U.S. company's European business model.

Uber said it would appeal against the decision and "has no plans to employ drivers in the Netherlands".

The court found drivers who transport passengers via the Uber app are covered by the collective labour agreement for taxi transportation.

"The legal relationship between Uber and these drivers meets all the characteristics of an employment contract," the ruling said.

"Due to the judge's ruling, the Uber drivers are now automatically employed by Uber," said Zakaria Boufangacha, FNV's deputy chairman.

Uber drivers are in some cases entitled to back pay, the court said. »
