Free bus rides for all
As regional bus drivers go strike again, the public will get to ride for free on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.27 May 2008
THE NETHERLANDS - Bus drivers on regional routes are once again on strike on Tuesday.
However, buses will be running during the morning and evening rush hours, though drivers will not check or stamp tickets.
There will also be actions on Wednesday and Thursday, in the hope of obtaining a better collective labour agreement. If there is no breakthrough, the unions have announced tougher action next week, with a full strike for an indefinite period.
Negotiations between the unions and employers stalled in early April.
