Strike action planned for taxi drivers

Taxi drivers in Coventry have launched their second bout of strike action in as many months.

02 February 2011

Strike negotiations may be necessary between taxi drivers and councillors in Coventry, as drivers have begun a second round of strike action in the city.

Following a five-day protest last month, taxi drivers have begun a fresh strike this week in protest over the lack of ranks available and increasing number of cab licences being issued by the council.

The local authority had agreed to temporarily stop issuing licences until it could establish how many were needed, but has since retreated on this following legal advice.

Lindsley Harvard, cabinet member for city services, said the council's legal department warned such a cap would be unwise.

The authority now wishes to commission a survey to settle the issue, but has come to blow with the cab drivers over who should foot the bill for it.

It comes after journalists at the Sheffield Star prepared to take strike action in response to plans for compulsory redundancies at Johnston Press, the editorial hub in the city.
