Bus drivers announce 2-hour strike tomorrow in protest of low salaries

Bus drivers announce a strike tomorrow in much of the country between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., in an escalating protest of their low salaries and against Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli, who is allegedly refusing to meet their representatives.

The strike, announced by the National Workers’ Union, is expected to cause significant traffic at the time parents head out to take their children from school and kindergarten.

The strike will stop all intracity bus lines in Netanya, Ashdod, Petah Tikva, Rosh Ha’ayin, Yavne, Gan Yavne, Beersheba, Ariel and the Samaria Regional Council. It will also halt many inter-city buses, including between Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh, Bnei Brak, Modiin Illit and Ben Gurion Airport.
