Bus driv­ers to strike

The Dominion Post - - News -

Many Welling­ton bus ser­vices will be can­celled to­mor­row as bus driv­ers go on strike. The Tramways Union, which rep­re­sents bus driv­ers, said union mem­bers em­ployed by oper­a­tor NZ Bus would strike be­tween 9am and 3pm. That meant all Welling­ton City routes op­er­ated by NZ Bus would be can­celled dur­ing the strike. The dis­pute is over bus driv­ers’ terms and con­di­tions. In Oc­to­ber, some union driv­ers em­ployed by an­other of Welling­ton’s bus op­er­a­tors, Tranzur­ban, went on strike for one day. But the strike had lit­tle ef­fect on com­muters, with al­most 97 per cent of af­fected ser­vices run­ning on sched­ule.

Bus routes af­fected:

Nos 2, 3, 12, 12e, 13, 14, 18, 18e, 20, 21, 22, 28, 30x, 31x, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37
