Tshwane warns of possible bus strike
The City of Tshwane has advised bus commuters to make alternative transport arrangements.
JOHANNESBURG - The City of Tshwane says commuters who use their bus services should prepare for a possible strike next Monday and Tuesday.
The municipality says 60 drivers affiliated to South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) are facing disciplinary action for unprotected industrial action in 2014 and are likely to cause service disruptions yet again.
At the time, commuters were left stranded during the strike period and numerous postponements have led to hearings only being heard now.
Municipal spokesperson Lindela Mashigo says commuters should try making alternative transport arrangements.
"We are warning our commuters merely because it has become a common practice that whenever Samwu members have to face disciplinary action, other drivers usually pledge solidarity with those that are facing disciplinary proceedings."
