Dear Jason

 

Today I went to TCS Head Quarters located at Alexandria. This is also the Head Quarters of many associates of the taxi mafia including Combined Communication Network.

 

If you enter in to that property any thinking person would gain the impression that all taxi drivers are somehow criminals and terrorists! Many overly directing and unnecessary signs are shown such as “do not enter", "taxi drivers not allowed beyond this point" etc. etc. Control, control, control they silently scream. After all, “You’re only taxi drivers…don’t-you-know?” is the unspoken yet underlying message. The reality is this network and all other taxi networks survive on the taxi drivers’ blood, sweat and tears!

 

Taxi drivers existed before taxi networks even came into being. The taxi networks were and are created to serve the needs of the taxi driver members including the drivers that drive the vehicles and pay accordingly to do so. So that in turn the operator or owner then pays the taxi network to service all of the drivers that are involved.

 

Most importantly, I went there to fix my radio which is a life line for taxi drivers! I noticed ten taxis were waiting to be fixed but not one human being was available to attend these taxis or drivers!! In the midst of all of this I noticed one little guy, possibly suffering from sleep deprivation running around like a headless chook.   

 

Now under the NSW legislations taxis must be attached to a Radio Network and pay whatever money those networks demand. Yet, thanks to the NSW Labor Party (RIGHT WING), no law compels these radio networks to do the right thing in respect to them competently and respectfully servicing the persons and stakeholders that allowed those very networks to continue to function.

 

Please let us know why taxi drivers have to put up with this kind of idiocy, non service and dictatorial controlling?

 

With thanks

 

Sincerely yours
