Stand With Taxi Drivers—Stop New TLC Rules!
Where: Taxi & Limo Commission (outside), 33 Beaver Street, New York, NY
The New York Taxi Workers Alliance is holding a rally to protest new rules being proposed at the Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC).
Stop TLC Vote On New Rules to Let Garages & Brokers Steal Our Raise!
TUESDAY, MAY 14TH, 2pm
Outside TLC Headquarters
33 Beaver Street, NYC
Take 4/5/6 to Bowling Green.
It took taxi drivers 8 years to get a raise. It took the garages and brokers 8 months to use their money to buy a new rules proposal.
Some of the 12 Proposed Rules:
- Garage drivers pay for repairs
- Every weekly driver pay for 7 shifts
- Lease increase every six months when credit card usage goes up – even though more volume and more new vendors means less costs for them.
- Lower TLC fine on garages and brokers from $10,000 to $1,000 for retaliation if a driver files an overcharge complaint
When over 200 drivers came out for the scheduled vote in April, many of the 8 Commissioners raised objections to the rules. We have the momentum!
The vote was postponed! UNITED We Will Win!
