Westbus Bus Drivers Do They Lose Jobs?
I saw on the news that Westbus drivers are losing jobs in Penrith and Liverpool area. It was announce about 50-70 jobs lost. It depends on how you perceive this comment, based on the new Region 1 Bus contracts completion of tendering.
I'm sure Busways will want to have bus drivers in Penrith and I'm sure Transit Systems Australia will want to have bus drivers in Penrith. It also depends on what the bus contracts bring for bus routes. If there is a dramatic reduction in bus routes/timetables, then this could be then be definitely true.
Yet if not, then it should be a transitional period fro bus drivers to apply to Busways for their jobs. If could be 'Screaming with the attack happening!
We will have to wait and see!
