And The gloves Are Off....Addison Lee Splinter Group Letter... Looks
Like They Mean Business.
Drivers from the minicab firm Addison Lee protested yesterday over reduced rates introduced by the company.
The familiar black cars filled the famous square at lunchtime, hooting horns and hampering traffic.
London Live spoke to some of the drivers and representatives from the GMB Union, which was leading today's action.
In a statement, Addison Lee denied that the recently introduced changes had adversely affected drivers.
"Despite the number of private hire drivers in the London market increasing by over 50% in the past 2 years, our average driver earnings have increased by 5% compared to this time last year," said a spokesperson. "We can assure all our clients that our drivers are fairly compensated for their time and service."
