Union meeting forces two-hour bus shutdown


Buses will be off the roads for two hours today as bus drivers hold a union meeting.

The bus service, already on a work-to-rule, will down tools between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

The Department of Public Transportation said there would be an interruption of service as staff were updated on “matters of concern to the employees” in an effort to end the industrial action.

A spokesman added: “The DPT look forward to resuming full bus services and apologise for the inconvenience to the travelling public.”

The announcement came yesterday as 46 bus routes, including school runs, were cancelled.
