In another letter to Taxi Leaks, Greenbadgejohn asks the representative orgs and union:
Why are you letting this happen???
Its a great pity this meeting wasn't held before the taxi age limit consultation, because there were a couple of questions on that consultation that could attract an agreement without causing any dissent and maybe those questions were deliberately inserted to get a common agreement, to bag people into a whole 100% agreement assumption as the RBK&C councillor warned the congregation at the cycle lane meeting mentioned.
This comes as a severe warning to us all, regarding the low integrity and total bias, in the way TFL conducts itself on so called consultations. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea themselves have called TFL consultatns out with warnings on individual completions... So it must now be highlighted to all of the cabtrade (if they did not know it already by now) that it really is them verses us.... So do your duty when replying to all consultations and complete without giving any leeway.
The question must now be asked...why the representative orgs and Unions haven't in the passed, create a prior template to be followed to the letter by drivers???
Because The Councillor in the previous article warned of tricks ahead by TFL to effctively get their way against RBK&C
So, because of the situation between 'them and us', we must always expect the worse ourselves.
Let's face it, the cycle lobby have been doing this for a while now and this is one reason they seem to always get what they asked for....simply because they know exactly how to ask!!!
Be Lucky... And but be warned.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT:
This is something we've covered before, but since the RBK&C meeting....there's more.
Why haven't senior reps bought up this issue of bias consultation questions at the trade's meetings with TfL?
Or if they have... why haven't we heard about it?
What is it they talk about?
Do they get to talk?
Or are they just given messages to report back to the rank and file?
This is why its imperative that all meetings must be minuted, so we can all find out what is and isn't being talked about.
Why did our largest org and Unite the Union vote against minuted meetings?
What are the frightened of?
Are they frightened we will find out what they are actually saying to TfL?
The UCG, LCDC and the RMT have all asked for minutes to be taken at all meetings, but so far this request has been refused...again the important question here is WHY ???
