No Bus Today!
Sunbus staff have walked off the job today until midnight except for TWO lines amid pay disputes with the company.
The Transport Workers Union is asking for a 6.5% pay increase and has accused the company of trying to keep the service low cost "at the expense of staff"
The Cairns Chamber of Commerce has slammed the decision saying the increase was "unviable" and the strike action would "deliver a blow to the most vulnerable in our community"
There will be only TWO lines running today. The 110 - Cairns Central to Palm Cove and the 142 - City to Edmonton via Stockland Shopping Centre, Mount Sheridan Plaza and Bentley Park
If you are not using this routes it is advised you make other arrangements. Strike finishes at midnight Friday. For more info head to sunbus.com.au/cairns
