The United Private Hire Drivers and the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain have announced that they will be holding a series of rolling demos across London.
The first demo will take place at 10am on January 14, outside the Palestra building in Blackfriars Road.
The demo is in response to the Mayors plan to impose the Congestion Charge on Private Hire Vehicles entering the London charging zone.
The UPHD and IWGB have stated via social media that they believe the imposition of the Congestion Charge is being unfairly levied against PHV drivers.
They have also stated that they believe Transport for London are acting in a disctlriminatory fashion against the private hire industry.
Further demo dates are expected to be announced at a later date.
