The self-employed urge Ábalos to intervene in the taxi conflict
The self-employed urge the Ministry of Public Works to intervene in the taxi and VTC conflict and «stop throwing the hot potato to autonomies and municipalities» The president of the National Federation of Autonomous Workers (ATA), Lorenzo Love, has urged the department led by José Luis Ábalos to "give a solution" to the conflict between taxi drivers, VTC Y communities and consistories.
«We can not have 17 different rules and more than 200 different ordinances. Let administrations solve the problem they have created ", he has sentenced in his Twitter account.
Yesterday the minister José Luis Ábalos offered to mediate between communities and taxi and VTC to reach a solution, although denied that it was a "national problem" and limited it to some regions and cities. The Ministry passed a decree in September to give the competition on taxis and VTC to the territorial administrations instead of the central government.
Technicians from the Community of Madrid and the City Council met today to try to reach solutions on this issue and at 17:00 several taxi organizations have called a press conference.
