Bus drivers are on strike in Auckland today. The strike is an escalation of on-going industrial action designed to bring bus company bosses back to the negotiating table with more of a humanitarian, rather than fiscal, attitude to the plight of their workers. A pamphlet recently handed out to passengers on the Howick and Eastern lines explains part of the situation and asks that members of the public lend what support they can to the drivers.
The other company trying to reduce worker conditions and pay is NZBus. Feel free to contact that company and express your support for its drivers too . . .
