about the taa
In September 2019 the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Association of Australia changed its name to Transport Alliance Australia to better represent the diverse transport options in the commercial passenger vehicle market. The TAA works to give a voice to members in state and federal government. Our objectives:
- to consider and deal with all questions and issues involving the CPV industry;
- promote, support and propose legislative or other measures affecting the CPV industry;
- campaign to improve driver/owner remuneration levels;
- protect the rights of drivers and owners working into the industry;
- promote ideas and programs to assist in maintaining a high industry standard for CPVAA members.
UBER CLASS ACTION
The TAA/CPVAA has been active in bringing a class action against Uber with Maurice Blackburn lawyers on behalf of participants in the taxi, hire-car, limousine and charter vehicle industry. We urge all taxi and hire car drivers, operators and licence owners to get on board and register their interest.
Commercial Passenger Vehicle Reforms Inquiry
ON-DEMAND WORKFORCE INQUIRY
The industry association for drivers and operators in Victoria has expressed its disgust and disappointment at the indifferent response to the devastation in the taxi and hire car industry from the taxi industry regulator at recent parliamentary hearings into the Commercial Passenger Vehicle reforms.
The industry we represent has gone through many upheavals, changes and ideals over the past decade. The name Commercial Passenger Vehicle
Association of Australia (CPVAA) is synonymous with the taxi and hire car industry in Victoria, as the government refers to these vehicles as commercial passenger vehicles.
We asked lawyers from Maurice Blackburn for an industry update on where the case was at. Registered participants in the class action against Uber will receive regular email updates from the lawyers.
