Council Member Koo Calling Campaign

Este mensaje está escrito en español a continuación

此消息以下面的中文写成


Fellow FHV Worker,

At this point, I don’t have to tell you that the Intro 838-a (The Diaz Bill) would absolutely destroy FHV drivers if passed.

The bill has several sponsors, including New York City Council Member Peter Koo. His district is in Flushing, Queens where thousands of IDG members live. Koo was elected to listen to their concerns, not vote to take our jobs away.

Call Council Member Peter Koo by clicking this link or dialing 833-290-1102. Let him know that working drivers cannot afford to be limited to a single app, and make it clear that Intro-838a will destroy any chance we have of making a living in this industry.

Once connected, follow the script below:

Hi, my name is Dennis Duan and I’m a For-Hire Vehicle Driver and member of the Independent Drivers Guild, who represents over 65,000 app-based professional drivers in NYC. I’m calling to ask Councilman Peter Koo to immediately stop supporting Intro 838-a because it harms workers. Thank you, have a nice day.

We may see a decision on this dangerous bill next week. Don’t let people like Peter Koo cast their votes without hearing from you.

In solidarity,

Hailing Chen, Independent Drivers Guild


Trabajadores del volante,

En este momento, no tengo que decirle que la Intro 838-a (The Diaz Bill) destruiría absolutamente los conductores de FHV.

El proyecto de ley tiene varios patrocinadores, incluyendo el miembro del Consejo de la Ciudad de Nueva York, Peter Koo. Su distrito se encuentra en Flushing, Queens, donde viven miles de miembros de IDG. Koo fue elegido para escuchar nuestros preocupaciones, y no para votar a quitarnos nuestros empleos.

Llame al miembro del Consejo Peter Koo haciendo clic en este enlace o marcando 833-290-1102. Hágale saber que los conductores que trabajan no pueden permitirse el lujo de estar limitados a una sola aplicación, y dejar en claro que Intro-838a destruirá cualquier oportunidad que tengamos de ganarse nuestra vida en esta industria.

Una vez esta conectado, siga el script a continuación:

Hola, mi nombre es ___________ y soy Conductor de vehículos para alquiler y miembro del Independent Drivers Guild, que representa a más de 65,000 conductores profesionales en Nueva York. Llamo para pedirle al concejal Peter Koo que deje de apoyar inmediatamente la Introducción 838-a porque perjudica a los trabajadores. Gracias que tengas un buen día.

Podremos ver una decisión sobre esta peligrosa legislación la próxima semana. No permita que personas como Peter Koo votan sin saber de ti.

En solidaridad,

Hailing Chen, gremio de conductores independientes


IDG 独立司机工会成员,

现在,我们不必再次强调如果市议会通过838-A 法案(迪亚兹比尔)会摧毁FHV 整个行业。

该法案几个支持者,其中包括法拉盛市议员顾雅明。他代表法拉盛选区成千上万的网约车司机,他对其所在的选区里的选民生活负有不可推卸的责任,有义务倾听他们的担忧,而不是投票摧毁他们的收入。

点击此链接或拨打833-290-1102 致电理事会成员顾雅明办公室 Peter Koo。让他知道,如果市府通过 838 A 法案,所有的司机将不能维持稳定的收入,并明确表示我们反对838A 法案

电话接通后,请按照以下内容讲:

” 你好,我的名字是________,我是一名网约车司机和独立司机工会的成员,该组织代表了纽约市 65,000 名网约车司机的利益。我打电话希望顾议员立即取消对 838-A法案的支持,因为它会严重打击我们的收入和迫使我们离开现有的工作。”

我们很快就会看到有关这一危险法案的表决。不要让顾雅明在不理解 838 A 法案 对65000个家庭的影响的情况下投票。

团结一致,

-独立司机联盟
