Eskalation bei Taxi-Streiks Eskalation bei Taxi-Streiks
21.02.2017 19:00 Uhr Seit mittlerweile einer Woche streiken in Italiens größeren Städten die Taxifahrer. Sie protestieren gegen die wachsende Konkurrenz durch den US-Fahrdienstvermittler Uber. Bei Protesten kam es zu gewaltsamen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Taxiunternehmern und der Polizei.
Für Pendler und Touristen wird die Situation spätestens am Mittwoch zusätzlich mühsam, da auch Busse, Trams und U-Bahnen bestreikt werden.

Taxifahrer: „This is very serious for us because we are a public service, at prices that are regulated, with an obligation to serve clients. We are an integral part of the public transportation service. If on the other side there is unfair competition with us, the public transportation service that we provide can no longer be guaranteed. That is because the income for the families of those who work is no longer guaranteed.“
Virginia Raggi (Bürgermeisterin von Rom): „As you know we have already registered with our members of parliament (those of the 5 Star Movement) two amendments to ask for the suppression of the Lanzillotta amendment, that for us is a shameful amendment, because as usual it is an effort from above to make everything much more complicated in the handling of the activities of the city. In our opinion any reforms should be done, when they are on the local level, by the local administrations, in concert with associations and workers from the category that it the reforms relate to. We are obviously with you, but you know this. For us the service of public transport that is not the bus/tram lines is fundamental. It is the business card of the city, so it has to be regulated, as it already is, in a clear way. It clearly can be improved, but reforms coming from above, we do not like them, and they just complicate the whole system.“
