Unfortunately, as a result of dead-locked wage negotiations, the unions’ party to the South African Road Passengers Bargaining Council (SARPBAC) have given notice of their intention to embark upon strike action on Wednesday, 18 April 2018.

Negotiations are still taking place and Golden Arrow remains hopeful that an agreement can still be reached.

If the strike action goes ahead, Golden Arrow will institute a company-wide lock-out in order to ensure the safety of passengers and staff for the duration of the strike. Services could, therefore, be suspended from 18 April 2018.

In the event of a strike, weekly and monthly clipcards that are valid when the strike commences will be extended when service resumes.

"We will endeavour to keep our passengers informed of any new developments via all communication channels available to us," states a press release.
