NZ Bus services running as normal from today

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Aucklanders, NZ Bus services have resumed, following six days of driver suspensions affecting approximately 70,000 trips daily. The suspensions came as bus drivers stopped accepting passenger fares, in a bid for better pay work hours. On Thursday, First Union and Tramways withdrew industrial action after Auckland Council got involved with concerns of the suspension's impact on the city's public transport. However, union members and NZ Bus are yet to come to an agreement.
Were you able to catch your normal bus this morning?

Mum's On Purpose in 2020?

Anthea from Lifestyle Happy Place

I absolutely Love being a mum. And Love being in control as well.🤣😂🙏

Hey, I'm Anthea, I think I'm pretty approachable and my friends would probably say I'm outgoing as well.

Why I say that is because I believe every mum can absolutely achieve what they want in life and I'd like to be available to any mums her need an ear to vent.

I just want to say, Just because you have babies doesn't mean your career and life has to stop for you.

I chose to keep moving forward after I had my first baby. I changed careers and did a 3 year bachelor's degree with a toddler.

It wasn't easy that's for sure! But the hard work, is all apart of this journey we are on. The result, was a great job, good money and stability.

So if it seems like something is going to be hard, take a GOOD LONG LOOK AT THE OUTCOME! That is what really matters. Not the hard work!

If you need more support we have a community of driven and on purpose mums creating amazing lives for themselves, including myself. We all run online businesses and we get to make life happy on our terms and we love it! Happy to share click the link for more info.

Good luck mums! I'm here for ya! You can do it!🧡♥️🌈
