No regional buses on Wednesday and Thursday
Bus drivers go on strike for better collective labour agreement after public-friendly strike action fails on two attempts.13 May 2008
THE NETHERLANDS - Regional buses will not be running in most of The Netherlands on Wednesday and Thursday, when bus drivers will be striking in aid of a better collective labour agreement.
On Queen's Day and during the Whitsun weekend bus drivers did not check or stamp tickets, but the unions say this friendly action has had no effect. After collective labour agreement talks stalled in April, the unions have consequently called the strike. Bus companies Connexxion, Veolia and Arriva will be affected.
Buses will only be running in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Dordrecht, the Achterhoek region and a small area in Friesland.
