Yesterday I reported that ACTION have put the same shifts on the table for drivers for a third time. Not surprisingly, the drivers are on strike.
The strike will last until at least 8:30, and there will be no school services today…and good luck getting to work…this will be a fun morning!
Update 7:12am: Just spoke with a driver on the picket line…they’re staying there until at least 9am. It could take a back down from Transport And Municipal Services head Mike Zissler for this strike to stop…they could be there for a while.
Update 7:23am: Just flicked over to the local ABC and heard loony breakfast host Ross Solly suggesting to the union secretary that strike action is unwarranted and there should be more negotiations…TAMS boss Mike Zissler was on there just before that pulling the wool over Ross’ eyes by trying to tell him that drivers don’t support the strike. Strangely poor interviewer that Ross Solly, and very easy to confuse and poll the wool over his eyes…thankfully I’m flicking the radio back to Mike Jeffreys on 2CC now!
