Addison Lee drivers challenge clients to uphold UN pledges
Unions confront Deutsche Bank and others in campaign for better pay
Taxi drivers are ramping up a campaign for better pay and union recognition from Addison Lee by challenging the company’s major corporate clients to uphold commitments signed under a UN accord obliging them to use ethical suppliers.
Deutsche Bank is the first of the taxi firms’ clients to be approached by union representatives who have also pointed out that its own “vender code of conduct” obliges it to recognise the right to collective bargaining, and minimum and prevailing wages and benefits.
