Federal mediators in Las Vegas say they are ready to help try to settle a strike involving the city’s second-largest taxicab company.
More than 1,000 drivers at Las Vegas’ second-largest taxicab company walked off their jobs Sunday, but the strike apparently caused no immediate major problems for visitors to the major tourist destination.
Drivers for the valley’s second-largest cab company are deciding whether to go on strike. Nearly 1300 employees at Yellow Checker Star Transportation are voting on a motion to authorize a walkout.
A vocal meeting of the state Taxicab Authority ended with board members voting not to allocate additional cars on Las Vegas streets.
Competition has led some Vegas cab drivers to hold passengers hostage.
Local cab companies have reason to smile these days.
