Bus drivers stopping work – but not during peak hours

News from Greater Wellington Regional Council
Stop work meetings by Tramways Union members will affect off peak services operated by NZ Bus on Thursday and Friday.

The Regional Council’s Sustainable Transport Committee Chair Barbara Donaldson says the meetings can provide more certainty for bus customers across the region.

“The Council sees the ratification meetings as a positive step towards concluding negotiations and looks forward to greater unity between the operator and union to the benefit of customers,” says Cr Donaldson.

The stop work meetings are scheduled to start at 10:30am on both days, affecting services between 9:30am and 4pm but are not planned to affect school or peak services.

Customers are urged to check the Metlink website and app for available services and make alternative travel arrangements.
