Metrobus management will today meet with union leaders in an effort to resolve issues around a strike by some of its bus drivers.
Services have been suspended and no buses are operating along Metrobus’s 229 routes in and around Johannesburg.
Metrobus spokesperson, Esther Dreyer says negotiations between the managing director and union members look promising.
Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union (Imatu) and the South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) are involved in the negotiations.
The exact reasons for the strikes remain unclear at this stage, Dreyer explains.
Dreyer says services have been suspended for the day, and until further notice.
The transport service has apologised to commuters for any inconvenience caused by the strike action.
