Over 60 black car drivers who work for NYC 2-Way, based at the corner of Bond and Carroll Streets in Gowanus, are currently on strike and picketing outside the building. The drivers are protesting what they claim to be unfair practices by the limo company — whose clients include Goldman Sachs, Citi Bank, Bank of America and Ernst & Young — including taking 22-32% of the fare, unfairly taking that percentage out of tips and tolls, collecting $56 in weekly dues, charging $130 for a weekly rental of the dispatch radio, and a number of other complaints listed on a document they were handing out.
