Johannesburg Metrobus goes back to the negotiating table with drivers

Johannesburg Metrobus says it will resume negotiations to end a three-week drivers’ strike. This after the drivers received no salary for February under the “no work, no pay” scenario.

Metrobus spokesperson Esther Dreyer says the 70 drivers have indicated that they want to speak to management.

Drivers have been angry since a new shift system was implemented at the company in December last year. Metrobus suspended all bus services two-weeks ago due to intimidation of non-striking workers.

On Tuesday last week, Metrobus appealed the ruling. Dreyer said the appeal was unsuccessful.

She said an update on the talks would be available this afternoon or Tuesday morning.
