Uber ban is unions' latest victory over ordinary Londoners

September 22, 2017 12:32 PM

Responding to Transport for London's announcement that it will not renew Uber's private hire licence, Alex Wild, Research Director at the Taxpayers' Alliance said: 

"TfL has once again caved into pressure from unions who wreak havoc with their endless strikes and never miss an opportunity to rip-off passengers.

This announcement is terrible news for those who rely on the service for transport and a living, but what’s especially galling is the 7 figure annual subsidy TfL provides to militant unions like the RMT who will be celebrating their latest victory over ordinary Londoners tonight.

City Hall must look urgently at this issue and scale back the 700-strong army of union representatives TfL employs."
