Trade union BTB has taken action in its ongoing efforts to confront app-based taxi system Uber over protecting standards for drivers and passengers. Although currently prohibited, Uber has been operating in Brussels and there have been calls for a lift in restrictions. According to the trade union Uber is a money-making machine that is the least interested in the taxi driver or customer. Uber doesn’t take any responsibility for the screening and training of their drivers, insurance and maintenance of the vehicles.
