National Taxi Workers’ Alliance (NTWA) is a United States labor union that was founded in February 1998 by organizers in New York City, as the New York Taxi Workers’ Alliance. On August 3, 2011, the NTWA made history when it became the 57th affiliate of the AFL-CIO. NTWA is the first non-traditional workforce made up of independent contractors who don’t work for an hourly wage to be granted membership into the AFL-CIO, the oldest labor federation in the country. The Executive Council of the AFL-CIO voted unanimously “to include the NTWA into the house of labor with a national unionize taxi drivers throughout the United States”. The union is made up of 200,000 taxi workers operating 100,000 vehicles serving 1 billion riders per year.
