24. They are bargaining with the cities that regulate their rates and working conditions.

They are real unions.

I added some other examples to the previous post.

And here's an another example of the kind of bargaining they can do;

As a result of having their own union, the drivers are being heard and it’s making a difference in their lives.

http://www.afscme.org/blog/taking-back-our-union-heres-how-were-growing-stronger

In July, the city dismissed more than half the tickets unjustly issued against the drivers — a direct result of the union’s new Driver Advocate program. In fact, more than half of the tickets defended by a Driver Advocate have been dismissed outright, while others were amended so that fines were reduced, all thanks to AFSCME’s Driver Advocate program.

The union’s review of police ticketing practices against cab drivers also led to a departmental “cease and desist” order to officers who had made a habit of targeting the drivers.

As drivers discover the power of AFSCME Strong, Cab Drivers United/AFSCME Local 2500 will continue to grow more powerful with each new membership.
