The national bus strike enters its second day as unions and employers meet at the CCMA on Thursday to try to find a resolution.
Frustration were evident throughout the country, with long queues at the country's taxi ranks and many people complaining they are unable to afford to use alternative transport because they had bought monthly or weekly bus tickets.
EWN Reporter, Mia Lindique spoke to Thembekile Mrototo on The Midday Report and said five unions representing over 17 000 bus drivers in the country are now currently meeting in Woodmead in Johannesburg with bus companies behind closed doors.
We don't know exactly what is happening there, we understand from a specific union who is involved in that meeting Satawu that there is no new offer on the table at the moment. But negotiations are continuing, so this can change in the next few hours.— Mia Lindique, EWN Reporter
