The drivers work for companies providing municipal transport services such as the Tshwane Rapid Transit Bus Service and long-distance travel services such as Greyhound.

Council of Trade Unions national president Richard Wagstaff said the deal struck with NZ Bus sets a new benchmark in Auckland on wages and work practices for the industry and clearly signals to other transport operators what terms and conditions are now required.

"The employers have pulled out of the talks".

Going into negotiations doesn't necessarily mean that our demands will be met.

"We must say our members certainly heeded the call to stay away from work, ' Numsa spokesperson Phakamile Hlubi said on Wednesday night".
