NYTWA Policy Platform & Rulemaking Petition to the TLC to Protect Full-Time Jobs

On April 25, 2018 we rallied on the steps of City Hall to announce a comprehensive policy platform to stop the crisis of poverty that had pushed four drivers to suicide in four months. The guiding principles in our policy platform are: stop the immediate crisis, protect drivers across all sectors, protect full-time driving jobs across the industry, raise driver incomes, and raise labor standards across the industry. The solutions we propose are to address the financial crisis drivers are experiencing across the industry, including yellow taxi, green cab, livery, black car, Uber, Lyft and other app-dispatched drivers.
