- After months of ugly demonstrations which featured batten charges from right police against working taxidrivers, Italian court has upheld the Taxi and Private Hire industry appeal against the online immediate hire app.
IF THE ITALIANS CAN DO IT... WHY CAN'T OUR ORGS AND UNIONS?
Below is a Translation from the Italian news paper, Libero Quotidiano
- The Civil Court of Rome, upheld the appeal for unfair competition posed by major unions and economic structures of the taxi industry and car hire with driver against the Group chauffeur service Uber Uber. The Court section of Rome, adhering to the thesis represented by a legal team led by lawyer Marco Giustiniani ensured "the conduct of unfair competition takes place on the Italian territory by Uber-resistant parts B.V., Uber, Uber Uber Italy srl International B.V., International Holding B.V.".
Judges in Roman have also banned the Group Uber "from engaging in non-scheduled public transportation with the use of similar and Uber Uber-app app Lux, Uber-Uber-Uber-Suv, X, XL, UberSelect, Uber-Van, sorting the blocking of these applications with reference to the requests coming from the Italian territory as well as to the promotion and advertising of those services on the national territory".
Uber will then have to pay a fine of 10,000 euro and every driver to 100 euros per day of delay in the fulfilment of the order after the tenth day following notification of the decision of the Court.
- The judges of Rome finally condemned Uber to pay the costs of the proceedings. "Following this decision of the Court of Rome, a few weeks following the Turin Court that confirmed the blocking of the service known as Uber Pop-they know the attorneys of taxi drivers in a note-the Uber group runs the risk of having to stop all its activities in Italy, because the services offered to date were recognized in contrast to the Italian law."
