I’ve made a petition – will you sign it?
Cross border hiring is dangerous to the public. Sub-contracting is no better.
ALPHA and the GMB have UNITED to bring to the attention of the government the issues within the Taxi & Private Hire trade from the Deregulation Act.
By inserting the word Predominantly into the Laws from both the Deregulation Act 2015 and the previous out of date laws, this would close the loop holes currently being used for drivers who circumvent the licensing system and the operators who use these drivers. The changes to the Taxi & Private Hire were questioned when this Act went through Parliament, the 10 days given to debate was on reason. The whole act was not consulted correctly, we can not let the public be in danger due to this.
