Taxi Drivers Set to Strike Yellow-Checker-Star Transportation (YCS) in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Taxi drivers employed at Yellow-Checker-Star Transportation (YCS) in Las Vegas have voted to authorize a strike, commencing Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 12:01 a.m., triggered by the company's unfair labor practices by refusing to provide the union with information relative to collective bargaining. There are 1,703 drivers in the bargaining unit.

In addition, YCS has unilaterally declared an impasse and imposed its version of the contract on the drivers. "Together, we have a refusal to provide relevant information and an imposed contract," said ITPEU/OPEIU Local 4873 President Dennis Arrington.  "The drivers were left with no choice but to move forward with the strike," Arrington concluded.
