SBS Transit makes application to the Industrial Arbitration Court

Five Bus Captains have made claims in the Magistrates’ Court which raise questions about prescribed rest days and overtime.

SBS Transit, which prides itself as a law abiding and responsible employer with strong labour relations with its employees and the NTWU, has acted in accordance with its obligations in law and under the relevant agreements and practices.

These claims raise issues that arise from and affect collective agreements that SBS Transit has entered into with the National Transport Workers’ Union (NTWU). Therefore, in accordance with the law, in the interests of all of SBS Transit’s Bus Captains and in keeping with the letter and spirit of its excellent relationship with the NTWU, SBS Transit will be referring these issues to the Industrial Arbitration Court (IAC) for its decision.
