The San Francisco Taxi Workers Alliance is a taxi drivers' union that was formed in August, 2014. It was created as a response to venture capital-backed sharing economy ride-share companies like Uber and Lyft, who have become huge competitors to the traditional taxi industry.

The union is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations), and is apparently the first of its kind in the city in ~40 years. Do you have info on the historic taxi drivers' union?
