Report: Voters might not have final say in referendum

Massachusetts voters go to the polls in November to decide whether Uber and Lyft drivers should be classified as independent contractors, but a new report suggests that might not be the final word on the issue.

The report, released Wednesday by Tufts University’s Center for State Policy Analysis, notes that a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Maura Healey, which calls for recognizing drivers as employees under the state’s wage and hour laws, is unlikely to be fully resolved by the Nov. 8 elections.
