Durban – Bus services in Durban resumed on Tuesday after an agreement was reached between the eThekwini municipality and bus company, Tansnat.

In a joint statement, the pair said the strike action regarding payment of January salaries had ended because employees had been paid.

The strike left hundreds of people stranded on Monday with several main roads leading to the city closed.

The city said last year drivers went on strike for three weeks after their December salaries and bonuses were not paid.

"However no further bus service disruptions are anticipated following a signed agreement between eThekwini Municipality and bus operator Tansnat on Friday, January 29."

The city said the agreement, to be made a court order, also provides for the appointment of an intervention team to be led by auditors to oversee the financial management of Tansnat's business and the company's bank account.

"The agreement further provides for the appointment of a reputable person or firm to adjudicate the issue of monetary claims that the city and Tansnat have registered against each other to determine who owes whom money and how much."
