Brussels taxi protest called for 26 November
Brussels taxi drivers are planning to disrupt traffic in the city centre on 26 November with a go-slow protest against "unfair competition".
Four unions representing the taxi sector have announced the joint strike action, including a procession setting off from Brussels North station at 9.30.
Taxi drivers in Brussels about disruption from Uber. Khalid Ed-Denguir, president of the Belgian taxi federation FeBeT, said: "The government said in September that it is considering a reform to combat Uber's unfair competition. Uber is still interpreting the legislation as it wishes."
The procession of taxis will head towards the office of Brussels minister-president Rudi Vervoort "to ask the government to finally put concrete proposals on the table," Ed-Denguir added.
