TAMS is warning that the bus drivers are taking all Friday off work to have a meeting:
ACTION General Manager James Roncon today expressed his disappointment in the planned industrial action on Friday by the Transport Workers Union (TWU).
The TWU has announced a 24-hour stop-work meeting from 12.01am on Friday 25 June 2010.
“This industrial action by the TWU will leave commuters stranded on Friday, particularly school children and those needing to get to work. The timing of the meeting has been deliberately organised to cause huge disruption to school children and the bus travelling public,” Mr Roncon said.

“We do not feel that this action is reflective of the desires of most of our workforce given that only 40% of drivers voted to support it. We are going to work all week to seek continuation of as many services as possible, particularly school bus runs and services between town centres.
“We will keep the public updated throughout the week on the ACTION website but at this stage commuters and parents should start thinking about making alternative transport plans for Friday.”
Good luck everyone!
