Johannesburg Metrobus says normal bus services have resumed today after a five-week strike by drivers.
Metrobus spokesperson Esther Dreyer says drivers affiliated to the SA Municipal Workers’ Union got nothing out of the strike as their demands were unreasonable.
Samwu had called for its drivers to be given preference when shifts were allocated.
Dreyer says Metrobus could not agree to this because if privilege was given to striking workers, the non-striking workers would not be happy about that.
