Auckland bus strike: What you need to know

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

More than 70,000 daily bus trips could be affected by a suspension dealt to hundreds of NZ Bus drivers across Auckland. The suspension comes after tensions between NZ Bus and union members as they tried to settle on a new collective agreement regarding pay and work hours. Union members had been declining bus fares from passengers, and planned to do so until Christmas before the suspension began. Now drivers will go without pay until Christmas Eve.
NZ Bus' biggest area is central Auckland, all of the Link services, and those serving the main isthmus arterials to eastern suburbs and along Mt Eden, Dominion and Sandringham Roads, as well as some to the outer west and northwest, and on the North Shore.
How has the bus driver suspension affected you? Let us know in the comments.

Last Call - Christmas Day Lunch Invite for our beloved Elders ❤️🎅

Kim Neighbourly Lead from Mount Roskill

Closing invites on Sunday 15th December.


Howdy Neighbours :-)

My tween daughter and I (Single mum) would like to invite an elderly person or 5 into our home to share a meal together. (LOL So far we have 10 of us attending).

We are well aware that there are many out there who spend this Special day alone. This year, you don't need to.

Last year, on Christmas Day, we invited our Neighbours over, and ended up with 15 of us here. It was a wonderful time.

This year, our family are having an early, and a late, get together.

In the past, we have volunteered at the City Mission Dinners.

This year, it's all about YOU!! Our elders ❤️

If you are an elder, or you know of an elderly person or couple, who will be spending their Christmas Day alone this year, please get in contact with us for a chat. We would love to hear from you.

Come to our home. Share in some joy and have a few laughs over a meal and bubbles (Sparkling Grape Juice/Lemonade).

It is good for my daughter to see these things happen, and for her to take part.

So, who out there knows who our first guest may be?

Have a great day Neighbours. Safe travels.

To those of us who have loved ones who have passed on and won't be with us this year ...... *So close, not matter how far ......"

Peace, Love and Light xx ❤️🎅
