“Following a reported taxi driver strike planned‚ Santaco consulted with its structure in Tshwane which decided the strike cannot be supported as it would not benefit the taxi industry and importantly taxi commuters.  Taxi owners in Tshwane have vowed to present themselves in the early hours of [Monday] morning at various taxi locations to ensure that no taxis are taken as part of the strike‚” the association said.  Taxi drivers have reportedly threatened to harshly punish non-striking drivers, but taxi owners say they will be monitoring the situation to ensure that the safety of non-striking drivers is protected.
