NYTWA Members Presented the DRIVERS' DEMANDS Today on City Hall Steps: Living Wage, Job Security, and a Raise for All!
Today NYTWA Members from all sectors presented the DRIVERS’ DEMANDS on the Steps of City Hall! Our Petition to Initiate Rulemaking to the TLC uses the force of city law for a response on our demands for a Living Wage, Job Security, and a Raise for All Drivers! We were joined by our allies SEIU 32BJ and also Council Members Ydanis Rodriguez and Margaret Chin stopped by to show their support!
We are ready to win one regulated minimum passenger rate of fare across the entire industry, double the meter for App drivers on out-of-town fares, an end to unfair deactivations, and a cap on FHV leasing and financing rates!
The FHV Vehicle cap is the foundation for these demands to stand on! And we will make our voices heard at the TLC Public Hearing on the FHV Vehicle Cap next Tuesday, July 23rd at 12noon at 33 Beaver Street!
