The Uber union news still dominates the papers this morning, though a few other nuggets slipped through.  Coverage of the City Council’s vote to allow Uber and Lyft drivers to unionize is widespread. Buzzfeed and several dozen other outlets posted stories.

As the coverage switches from reporting to analysis, it’s showing up in narrower outlets, including:

Politics:  National Journal

Conservative: RedAlertPolitics

Liberal: Daily Kos

Business/Tech: GigaOmNYSEPost

Academic/legal:  NextCity

Also, VatorNews and WSJ point out that Amazon’s contract drivers are not included in the new legislation.

In non-Uber news, Capitol Hill Seattle Blog and Seattle Globalist both report on the Council’s resolution to support the Muslim community.

Also, KING5 covers the deliberations on handing over management of the Japanese Garden to the Arboretum Foundation. reports on an upcoming court hearing on a challenge to Seattle’s recently-enacted tax on ammunition sales.
