The NSW TDA does NOT represent PLATE OWNERS!
It never has.
The NSW TDA represents ONLY Bailee drivers, Lessee drivers and Owner drivers.
Through the Networks and CCN and the Taxi Council Ltd the Plate Owners/Investors are leeches that contribute nothing to the taxi industry and for years have screwed operators and drivers financially by unilaterally raising weekly lease fees whenever it suits them.
The NSW TDA opposes these leeches that screw drivers and operators.
Whereas the owner drivers that the NSW TDA represents also carry all the other costs of operating a taxi and doing the hard graft of running and driving a taxi.
Trevor states to the Committee that, quote: “we represent Bailees Lessees and Plate Owners, that is in the constitution too, and even on the Letterhead”.
That is utterly false!
Our Constitution makes NO mention of Plate Owners.
Our Letterhead makes NO mention of Plate Owners.
Our Constitution and Letterhead refer ONLY to Bailee drivers, Lessee drivers and OWNER DRIVERS.
While deliberately quoting the NSW TDA Constitution and Letterhead,
Trevor, you have DELIBERATELY changed the words of our Constitution and Letterhead from Owner Drivers to PLATE OWNERS!
That is deliberately incorrect, false and misleading to our Committee!
What very deliberate game are you playing, Trevor?
It is suggested you immediately retract and amend and correct your email to the Committee.
The NSW TDA very deliberately represents ONLY Bailee drivers, Lessee drivers and OWNER DRIVERS as per our Constitution and Letterhead!
(Other aspects of your email are also incorrect but I refrain from comment on them.)
