Bus drivers may work to rule
Bus drivers could begin a work-to-rule as soon as this afternoon over longstanding problems.
Chris Furbert, the Bermuda Industrial Union president, told ZBM News that workers had a divisional meeting on Monday evening, when they agreed to give the management team 24 hours to address a range of matters.
If the issues are not addressed, Mr Furbert said the operators may launch a work-to-rule.
Among the concerns raised by drivers are health and safety problems at the Dockyard bus depot, non-working radios, job descriptions and even cockroaches in the buses.
He added that the division had sent the Head of the Civil Service a letter expressing a lack of confidence in the senior management team.
The Government had not responded to the comments by press time last night.
