Airline passengers arriving at Merida’s International Airport Tuesday Sept. 27 are encountering a general strike by the city’s unionized taxi drivers, but the United Front of Taxi Workers (FUTV) says it is providing the service at no cost to travelers arriving at the terminal.
The general taxi strike throughout Merida began at 4:00 a.m. today to support the protest against alternative transport companies Cabify and Uber.
Free airport transportation, an unprecedented event in the state, is being performed by nine vans of the ‘combi’ type. Travelers are taken to their destination.
The FUTV called a general strike for Tuesday 27 September; from early this morning, drivers stopped working and focused on several avenues of the city to begin their protest.
Taxi drivers are asking for the exit of companies providing taxi service via technology platform such as Uber and Cabify.
Last week, an assault on an Uber driver unleashed protests from both sides, and sparked a conflict that had been ‘asleep’ for several weeks, despite a deadline for regularization of alternative services provided via technology platforms.
The shuttle service performed by airport taxis is normally one of the city’s most expensive.
