Dear TLC, Don't Kill Our Bases
On November 20th, the TLC is going to vote into law a new set of rules that would allow app companies like UBER & Lyft to dispatch your affiliated drivers without your consent or knowledge.
This is going to kill your business!
Allowing anyone the ability to dispatch your drivers will:
§Unravel the industry by not allowing base owners to secure passenger trips.
§Make bases obsolete and powerless.
§Cause many bases to go out of business.
In a last minute effort to save our industry we ask everyone to not only sign the petition below, but reach out to City Hall, The Transportation Committee (lead by Ydanis Rodriguez), and the TLC and ask them to mandate the consent of the affiliating base to coordinate and maximize driver income.
Don’t allow the giants from the West Coast to come into our city and monopolize over 30 years of business.
Honor safety, accountability, and the right to chose in New York City.
The City that prides itself on small business is about to do away with small business!
It’s time to take a stand!
