I see on the ABC this morning that ACTION bus drivers are holding a stop work meeting today.
The drivers and their union are concerned about the budget cuts set out in the ACT Government’s budget last month. Apparently the plan is to cut 8 per cent from ACTION’s annual budget.
Looking for more information about what’s happening, I turned to that fount of all knowledge about buses in Canberra, Samuel Gordon-Stewart. He has a rather lengthy but informative piece explaining the proposed changes to the rostering system and what this is likely to mean in reality for bus users.
The ABC quotes Steve Connolly from the Transport Workers Union as saying they are not ruling out there being any further industrial action after today, which is a bit of a bummer for bus users.
