Poland: taxi drivers picket for decent working and living conditions

On 5 March the Inter-Enterprise Commission of NSZZ “Solidarność” Vocational Taxi Drivers held a picket together with the planned Tripartite Team on Road Transport at the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction to demand fair transport and respect for professional drivers.

The main goal of the meeting was to present proposals to solve the problems of taxi drivers and to present solutions to the unfair competition in the transport industry. Taxi drivers expect the government to deal with poorly regulated carriers such as Uber, Taxify or Opti Taxi. Ensuring decent working and living conditions is absolutely vital.
