Bus drivers were set to begin a work to rule from 6am today, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Transport.

A spokesman said the Department of Public Transportation was notified of the industrial action by the Bus Operators and Allied Workers Division of the Bermuda Industrial Union yesterday.

The spokesman said: “As part of our mandate to provide safe and reliable transportation, we are committed to meeting with the members to find common ground and work together to resolve the issues raised. Dialogue is open and a meeting is scheduled for tomorrow to address the concerns.

“Bermudians of all walks of life depend on the public transportation system. We are determined to resolve this impasse and restore full service for our passengers.

“The DPT apologises for the inconvenience to the travelling public and will provide updates as new information becomes available.”

Chris Furbert, the BIU president, told ZBM on Tuesday that bus operators raised a number of concerns during a meeting on Monday.

He added that the division had sent the Head of the Civil Service a letter expressing a lack of confidence in the senior management team.
