Ziptrack, a new company, which operates Blue Line, Capital, and DJ Taxi intends to continue to expand and make huge profits at the expense of their workers. The 40 members have had enough of being the worst paid workers in the call centre industry.
Taxi dispatchers make on average of $9 per hour. These members answer and respond to between 500 and 1000 calls a day and are not entitled to any benefits not even workers compensation. There are Union members who have been working here for over 30 years and still not making $12 an hour.
Today, January 14th, you can join hundreds of area residents, activists and supporters:
455 Coventry Road
12 Noon to 1:30 p.m.
We’ll show management that these Brothers & Sisters are not standing alone.
SUPPORT TAXI DISPATCHERS!
Buses and caravans will leave from CUPE National Office (21 Florence St) at 11:45
