AMSTERDAM, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Uber will appeal a Dutch court ruling that drivers are employees of the company and not independent contractors that make use of its platform, the company said on Monday.

"We are disappointed with this decision because we know that the overwhelming majority of drivers wish to remain independent," the company's manager for Northern Europe, Maurits Schoenfeld, said in a statement.

Earlier, the Amsterdam Disctrict Court sided with labour union FNV and found that drivers for the company are emloyees and entitled to the rights that implies. (Reporting by Toby Sterling, Editing by Louise Heavens)
