Coventry taxi drivers at work after strike

  • Published

Taxi drivers in Coventry are back at work after a week of strike action over an increase in the number of licences.

Drivers had a meeting with the city council and agreed the cost of a licence would go up by £14 to pay for a survey into taxi numbers and use.

But the Labour-controlled authority said until the report was completed, a cap on the number of taxi licences could not be issued.

The cost of a survey has been estimated to be between £30,000 to £40,000.
