Bus, taxi operators vote for all-island strike beginning Monday

Transport operators on Sunday afternoon voted to assist a transfer to withdraw their providers islandwide for 3 days, beginning Monday, after the Authorities did not grant a site visitors ticket amnesty as requested.

The Transport Operators Growth Sustainable Companies (TODSS) held a gathering at Half-Manner-Tree Major Faculty and 99 per cent of the attendees voted to go forward with the withdrawal of their service.

The transport operators need the Authorities to arrange a cost plan to permit them to repay excellent site visitors tickets, and aren’t asking for forgiveness of their tickets. They’re demanding a minimum of 4 months to repay their tickets.

“We can not take it any longer, and we’re calling for, and we’re in want of a cost plan, in any other case known as an amnesty, from the Authorities,” TODSS President Egerton Newman mentioned.

The transport operators had been reportedly advised that the Authorities would look into the potential of granting an amnesty, however that’s not a certainty. 

“That’s the place we’re at present. I urge all members of the commuting public to make different modes of journey, as bus and taxi operators will withdraw their providers till the Authorities comes with a cost plan or amnesty,” he mentioned on Sunday.
