SPAIN’S leading taxi union Fedetaxi has called for a strike next Wednesday.
The body has confirmed that they will guarantee the minimum services for hospitals, emergencies, airports and stations, but stressed that the Government and regional and local administrations must address their grievances.
It comes after the taxi drivers’ organization requested an urgent meeting with the government following the recent ruling of the Supreme Court that granted 80 new VTC driving licenses for Uber and Cabify drivers in Madrid.
Fedetaxi say new regulations are not strict enough on private hire cars.
They have requested greater police control of the VTC drivers and the ‘pirate VTCs’, which they claim ‘are proliferating in the streets’ with vehicles painted black and using fake stickers.
Fedetaxi says the strike will go forward if no progress is made.
