Seattle might let Uber drivers unionize; Twitter issues hacking warning; Congress wrapping up cyber negotiations

(Photo by George Rose/Getty Images) HERE COMES THE VOTE: The Seattle City Council will consider Monday whether to give drivers for services like Lyft and Uber the ability to unionize and collectively negotiate on pay. If the council approves the measure, Seattle would become the first city to take this step. “A national leader on workers’ rights, Seattle was among the first cities to pass laws to gradually raise the minimum wage to $15 and require most employers to provide paid sick leave,” the Associated Press reports. “San Francisco-based Uber and others say federal labor law prevents cities from regulating collective bargaining for independent contractors, and the ordinance would violate federal antitrust laws by allowing independent transportation providers to conspire to artificially drive up transportation costs.” Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2015/12/14/seattle-might-let-uber-drivers-unionize-twitter-issues-hacking-warning-congress-wrapping-up-cyber-negotiations/

Seattle Police Dept. hires Amazon VP as top tech exec, promising more data-driven crime-fighting

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The Seattle Police Department this morning named Amazon vice president Greg Russell as its new chief information officer — aiming to boost its technological prowess and improve its ability to use data to fight crime. Russell, 46, was previously an Amazon vice president overseeing areas including corporate applications, information technology and enterprise data warehousing. He starts at the Seattle Police Department on March 17, part of a broader management shakeup by Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole. In addition to overseeing the Seattle PD’s internal technology systems, Russell will be tasked with finding new ways of using data to track and predict crime, while balancing those capabilities with the privacy concerns of citizens. The department has been grappling with issues related to police body cameras, video disclosure, drones and other forms of emerging technology. “There will always be worries about what you’re going to do with the information,” said Russell in an interview posted this morning on the official SPD Blotter site. “If (you’re) transparent with how you’re going to use the information, and you make sure people can actually see it, I think most people will accept that.” Russell, a native of Scotland who lives on Bainbridge Island, became a U.S. citizen last year.
