London black cab drivers in £1bn group action claim against Uber

Drivers of London’s iconic black cabs are planning to sue Uber for £1.25billion in 'lost earnings', according to a new report. The Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association (LTDA) is working with leading law firm Mishcon de Reya to explore its options in making a legal claim against the online ride hailing giant.

The group is likely to argue that 25,000 black cab drivers in London suffered lost earnings averaging around £10,000 for at least five years as a result of Uber's failings. Based on these calculations, this would take the overall possible bill that Uber could be hit with to £1.25billion.

So far, Uber has declined to comment.


Last month, Uber won a partial victory at Westminster Magistrates' Court in getting its London operating licence renewed when they were granted a new 15-month permit which will allow the car service to continue to operate in the city.
The decision comes months after Transport for London (TfL) bosses blocked the US company from renewing its licence to operate for another five years, in September 2017.
