IT’S WAR: Taxi drivers to make election a battle ground

THE war raging between taxi drivers and ride sharing company Uber will be a major election issue, Taxi Council Queensland says.

The State Government passed new legislation yesterday that requires Uber driver to hold an annual licence.

But Taxi Queensland CEO Benjamin Walsh has labelled the new rules “bad policy for Queensland” saying an uneven playing field in the personalised transport space had now enshrined in law.

Mr Wash said the State Government had yet again proven its lack of knowledge and foresight and has let down over 16,000 small business operators, millions of Queenslanders and vulnerable sectors like the disabled community.

“The Government has also turned its back on people in wheelchairs and on minimum working conditions for drivers in the personalised transport sector,” Mr Walsh said.

He said the message to small business was clear; “Cut corners in order to cut costs so that consumers can save a buck at the expense of workers and the most vulnerable in the community.”
