RMT gives guarded welcome to Mayor's London Taxi strategy

Taxi Union RMT gives guarded welcome to elements of Mayor's London Taxi strategy but warns that he has again missed key issue on plying for hire

Mick Cash, General secretary of London Taxi Union RMT said;

"The union gives a guarded welcome to elements of this package that have already been widely trailed and we now expect that our London Taxi reps will be fully engaged ‎in discussions as to how this strategy moves forwards.

"However, we are bitterly disappointed that once again the fundamental issues of illegal plying for hire and the abuse of the regulations by outfits like Uber have been ducked even though they pose the greatest threat to public safety and the future of the black taxi trade.

"RMT will continue to push the Mayor to put the unions concerns about the future of the industry centre stage and we expect to be fully engaged and consulted as his strategy is rolled out. "
