Re: Taxi Plate

Dear Ms. Myint,

Further to my communications of Tuesday, February 23, 2010 I have to add the followings.

We have a de-regulated labor market.

We do not have a minimum income for the taxi workers.

We do not know why and who drafted and forwarded the Taxi Bill 2009 without any consultation whatsoever.

We also do not know why the NSW Transport & Infrastructure   suddenly invited us for consultation and they took our valuable oral and written submissions. Yet, they failed to reply with anything substantial to us.

Why did they rush in for that 2009 Taxi Bill before the NSW Upper House Inquiry re Taxi Industry even commenced?

Why did some one go on to appoint Price Waterhouse Coopers to justify their right or wrong decisions earlier or even in future regarding taxi plates?

Is it smelly?

We can not deny the fact that:

Taxi Industry is a service oriented industry.

Taxi Passengers must be given a safe and comfortable ride.

Taxi Drivers must be provided with a safe workplace and safer work practices.

Taxis plates are the property of the state and general public.

Taxis licenses must be used for the benefit of the people of New South Wales.  Both the commuter and workers within the taxi industry must benefit not just a few privileged "stake-holders" as is the present situation.  

We know more taxis will reduce bailee taxi drivers' income. However at the NSW Industrial Commission they have a very bad habit of not including the labor component and bailee drivers' income consideration at all. Even the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal does the same thing.

We also do not "know" why the NSW Transport Workers Union leadership are so keen to handover all of the money to the taxi owners? For example please examine:

1. Taxi Driver Entitlement under the Law

2. The NSW TWU's Crime against Taxi Drivers

3. AN OPEN LETTER TO ANYONE WHO CARES

4. Ghost and Gas – No Conspiracies

5. Barrister Adam Hatcher's Confession (?). The Ghost and Gas – No Conspiracies sheds some light on how they passed the burden of gas and wash to bailee drivers' shoulder illegally! One may ask why did the then TWU boss Steve Hutchins who is also President of the NSW Labor Party and a Senator from NSW took the "king's shilling" and sold out taxi drivers with labor lawyer Adam Hatcher?  

Faruque Ahmed Requests Attorney General to Intervene. Attorney General Refuses to Intervene to Protect Labor Party Stooges.   

Faruque Ahmed Calls Attorney General to stop TWU (Labor Party) Crime and the NSW Attorney General's Response to Faruque Ahmed is more than tragic!

Rotten NSW IRC, CC Connor Must Resign, Statutory Declaration re Connor's Conspiracies, More Connor Conspiracies, Madness of Connor, IRC Travesty and all other evidence must be investigated by this Upper House Inquiry to bring some sanity and a notion of justice in the NSW Industrial Relation Commission.  

To day, the reaming three and half NSW TDA Committee Members should not and must not oppose release of further taxi plates in favor of counterproductive investors contrary to the wishes and interests of travailing public and bailee taxi driers.

Unless the taxi industry mandarins and the Government of NSW commits to a proper and meaningful undertaking that they will respect and abide by minimum income of bailee drivers at the NSW Industrial Relations Commission and NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal, the taxi drivers in general do not oppose releasing any number of taxi plates.

With thanks

Sincerely Yours

Re: Taxi Plate

Dear Ms. Myint,

The following blogs can provide a pretty good picture of the NSW taxi industry.

Please also note, The NSW TDA does NOT represent PLATE OWNERS! They are supposed to represent bailee taxi drivers!!

Yet, for some strange reason, some of the remaining NSW TDA leadership is committed to stopping the further issuing of new taxi plates. Furthermore, they are not interested in addressing any of the many other burning issues affecting bailee taxi drivers!  

May the president please inform the committee and a few open and secret meetings between Anne Turner and the taxi industry mandarins may be instrumental for this strange direction.   

It is reported in the Sydney Morning Herald that the taxi mafia managed to silence and sabotage 20 inquiries and outcome of those inquiries! It is also evident that the taxi mafia is influencing the NSW TDA too!  

" … My Letter to Brian Langton generated Secrecy of NSW Ministry of Transport! I have collected many more other pieces of evidence, such as those mentioned above! It appears that there is much organised chaos! The department is acting against the wishes and interests of the state, public and workers. However, the department appears to be serving the interests of the taxi mafia very well.

Recommendation1. Politicians and public servants must uphold the state and public interest first and their decisions and decision making process should be democratic and fact based."

For further assistance:

NSW TDA is Under the Thumbs of Oppressive Power Drunk Clique. The NSW TDA does NOT represent PLATE OWNERS!

May the president please inform the committee  and Why Sex? are good enough to demonstrate the ugly, corrupt, vindictive and ruthless nature of this  clique.

Further to Mission Statement of the NSW TDA, My Response to the NSW TDA Committee, NSW TDA Committee Member and since the Election Result of 209, the power drunk `clique' virtually did nothing to advance bailee taxi drivers interest and welfare.

I made my position clear in Anne Turner – Do Not Destroy the NSW TDA, Anne Turner's Weapons of Mass Destruction, Answering Tony, Confidential NSW TDA Issues, NW TDA Committee Member, and Reg Kermode Thugs Went on to Kidnap and Rob Faruque Ahmed.

With thanks.

Sincerely yours
