Tshwane bus strike leaves many commuters severely affected and stranded

Many bus commuters were left stranded on Thursday after some staff at the C de Wet Tshwane Bus Service (TBS) depot went on strike.

A group of personnel Рcomprising artisans, senior operators and general workers Рblocked the main gate with two trucks.

Only three out of 105 buses were able to exit the depot.

Commuters in Centurion, Olivienhoutbosch, Danville, Pretoria East and some in Lotus Gardens were severely affected.

In a statement, the City of Tshwane said TBS management was not informed of workers’ intention to strike.

The City said the strike is related to disgruntlement about overtime and the apparent outsourcing of work to external companies.

The City of Tshwane profusely apologises to our loyal bus commuters who have been left stranded and inconvenienced by the strike today and advises them to make alternative transport plans while we are resolving the issues that led to the strike,” the City said.

“We condemn the behaviour of the striking personnel who should have utilised other avenues available to them to express their grievances than arbitrarily embarking on strike action.”
