Two days, no Taxis

Taxis in Mogan are striking. First of all we are striking because Anfi is cutting down our prices and keeping the money as a commission. Also we are striking because of the raising numbers of pirate taxis that are stealing our work doing transfers without a licence and with their private cars and getting money from their "costumers" for it.

The strike will be Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th of November 2009 and the taxis will stop working both days from 10 am to 8 pm.

Trouble with Anfi

You know the Anfi resort in Puerto Rico?
Well, if you've ever been to Puerto Rico you probably know it.
The Taxi central in Mogan it's been working with Anfi for a long time know and we've been accepting their way of working with us till now.

We are driving many Anfi customers and "maybe" customers with so called "Taxi Slips". We drive, the customer gives us the "Taxi Slip" and then we go back to Anfi to get our money on the fly. We have arranged a deal and in most cases we receive less money than the trip is worth but we agreed to do so.

So what's the problem know?
Now Anfi says they want to pay us in three month (!) What is that? Yes, we drive a customer to Puerto Rico for 5€ (Taxi Slip) and we'll get those 5€ three month later. I don't know what those people are thinking but we do not agree with this as we still have to pay for insurance, fuel, repairs and other stuff and we surely cannot pay them with Taxi Slips but with real cash.
As Anfi doesn't seem to care about that the only way to make them clear we disagree is to block Anfi from receiving our service. This includes the whole Anfi resort in Puerto Rico (Anfi Beach Club, Monte Anfi, Puerto Anfi and Grand Anfi) and in Tauro (Anfi Emerald Club and the Anfi Golf Courses). We will continue to bring customers to the those locations but there won't be any pickups. The blocking started at Monday the 2nd of November and it is not defined when it will be finished. Let's hope that both parts come to a solution soon.
