Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- One of the largest cab companies in Las Vegas is on strike.
Drivers with Yellow-Checker-Star Taxi Cab Corporation began picketing at company headquarters at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.
The strike has continued into Sunday night.
There are hundreds of cab drivers on strike, upset with the company, about the length of hours they are required to work. They say it's unfair treatment.
The union said they rejected two previous contract offers from the cab company, but the company still implemented some measures in early February.
Drivers told Action News how frustrated they are with work conditions, including the lack of transparency in what they get paid.
They said they feel threatened when they complain about having to work 72 hours instead of the regular 40 hours a week.
In the meantime, the company said it implemented a wage increase after six months, safety bonuses and ensures the company pays for gasoline.
They call the new deal "more than fair."
