Metrobus drivers call for salary increase

Metrobus services

Transport union Demawusa says Metrobus management is not talking to them.

It says this means its strike will continue.

The union says there has been no explanation as to why their demands can’t be met.

Metrobus drivers are calling for an 18 percent increase.

“They are not putting any counteroffer, they are just arrogant and they are not even giving reasons why,” said the union’s Dion Makhura.

Meanwhile, Metrobus claims Demawusa is holding the city at ransom.

The union’s strike has entered its second week.

The bus company says it’s not in negotiations with the union.

It’s calling on commuters to continue making alternative arrangements until the issue is resolved.

“We just want to congratulate and thank employees that have shown courage from the beginning of the strike,” said Goodwill Shivuri.

“I’ll have to encourage our passengers to continue making alternative transport as we try to find ways to resolve the issue here.”
