Spanish Taxi Drivers Continue Strike, Protest against Ride-Hailing Apps

MADRID – Spanish taxi drivers will start new protests on Tuesday, their ninth day of work stoppages to demand a regulation of ride-hailing services like Cabify or Uber, in front of the headquarters of the General Union of Workers in Madrid.

This is what taxi drivers decided last night during an assembly in the Wanda stadium. Jose Miguel Funez, spokesperson for the taxi drivers union, told EFE that after the protest at the headquarters of the union they will move to the People’s Party (PP) headquarters to continue to press their demands.

Taxi drivers will also set up a camp at Madrid’s Barajas airport for taxi drivers who come from other Spanish cities to join the protest.

More than 2,000 taxi drivers gathered on Monday afternoon at the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, in front of the Royal Post Office, to demand better regulation of the ride-hailing services.

The participants in the protest called for the resignation of the President of the Community of Madrid, Angel Garrido, and chanted slogans such as “Not one step back,” “We are taxi drivers, not terrorists” or “More regulation, less corruption.”
