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.
We are a concerned community group dedicated to protecting the Ngahere (Forest). Currently 4 mature oak trees are under threat to make way for a 5-story retirement village in the Parnell Train Station Carpark.
Most of the mature trees have been cut and the uglification of the area is pretty apparent.
Join us in the group for updates, and for what you can do to help protect our trees, who's presence we require so desperately in this rapidly heating climate.
See you there!
I am looking for someone who can assist with putting up a drier on the wall in my laundry and other tiny things that need attending to. Anyone out there who can help please?
