    We consider private good economies with single-plateaued preferences. We show that the uniform rule is the only allocation rule satisfying indifference (in terms of welfare), strategy-proofness and no-envy. Indifference (in terms of welfare) means that if one allocation is recommended, then another allocation is recommended if and only if all agents are indifferent between these allocations.
