Unite is one of the most influential trade unions in the country, and the Cab Section, which was formed in 1874, has a long history of leading actions to defend and improve the conditions of cab drivers. Unite has:
• led effective boycotts of railway stations to open them to taxi drivers
• helped devise the London and other cost indexes
• marched to control the number of taxi drivers on our roads
• negotiated to allow taxis to use bus lanes
Unite’s Cab Section is the only truly national organisation for cab drivers. The future of the trade has never been secure and Unite is fighting for the benefits of drivers and their passengers alike.
