Metrobus drivers on strike

2010-12-07 10:10

Johannesburg Metrobus passengers were left stranded yesterday because of a strike by bus drivers over the new shift system, SABC news reported.

“Despite being requested by management to give their input on the new shifts, bus operators have not responded, and now refuse to operate these new shifts,” Metrobus said.

It said there was a rescheduling process in order to improve the bus service to “meet passenger demands” that required new shift allocations.

Passengers were advised to make alternative transport arrangements until further notice.

“Management will continue to do their utmost to try to resolve these issues, but as from [Monday], no bus service will be available to passengers,” Metrobus said.
