Plan to end bus strike due Friday

Former minister Klaas de Vries is due to hold a news conference late on Friday to present his proposal on how to end the current regional bus strike.

Regional bus drivers went on indefinite strike last Sunday in support of a 3.5% pay claim.
The employers have offered 12% over three years in return for fewer holidays and more unpaid breaks.
