Similarly, in Spain, the Madrid Taxi Driver Association pressed charges against the company at the Madrid Trade Court in October 2014. In December, the court ruled that Uber had to cease operating nationally as it was causing ‘immediate harm’ to the taxi sector, and that taxi drivers were suffering from ‘unfair competition’ (in Spanish). The High Court of Justice in Madrid also obliged phone companies to stop offering their services for the Uber platform. Uber therefore had to interrupt its services indefinitely.Adam, Duncan, et al. “Digitalisation and working life: lessons from the Uber cases around Europe.” EurWORK| European Observatory of Working Life 25 (2016).
