The UCG was originally formed in 2010 by a group of drivers’ in the Royal Oak. Frustrated by the way the trade was being treated they formed the basis for the present day UCG. In 2014 another totally separate group of drivers met – for totally the same reasons- and contacted the group and relaunched with a demonstration, which took place on London’s Oxford Street.
From then on change’s have been made including making the organisation 100% democratic and an organisation which is owned by the drivers via mutual society.
The committee are all working cab drivers – if you don’t drive a cab you can not serve on the committee. We are working to protect our status as the worlds gold standard taxi service.
