Metrobus operational today

Metrobus drivers were back on the roads this morning after a five-week strike against a shift system implemented last December.

The company and the SA Municipal Workers Union reached an agreement on Thursday, said Metrobus spokesperson Esther Dreyer.

Both parties resolved that the new shifts, which gave drivers a five-hour unpaid lunch break, would remain in place.

They, however, had until yesterday to select new shifts based on their length of service.

A task team would also be established to advise management on future shift system changes.

Passengers in possession of tags would also be allowed to board buses free of charge for the first two days – today and tomorrow – as an interim refund measure, Metrobus said.
