Johannesburg - Public hearings on conditions within the taxi industry started in Limpopo on Monday, the provincial labour department said.

"We have decided on a series of public hearings to understand what the industry stakeholders think.... This will be followed by escalating the feedback to the Employment Conditions Commission (ECC)," said acting director of employment standards Titus Mtsweni.

The ECC would then advise the labour minister on appropriate wages and conditions for the industry.

Mtsweni said taxi drivers had to be given a R250 boarding allowance and to have accommodation arranged for them, to reduce their chances of being robbed.

Taxi drivers were currently earning R2449 a month and queue marshalls R1959 a month.

Public hearings would be held in Richard's Bay and Durban, in KwaZulu-Natal, next week.
