The bus service in the City of Logan will be in chaos tomorrow, October 4, with peak travel times to be impacted by industrial action.
This disruption is a result of a decision by the union to undertake a 24-hour stoppage of work tomorrow, following enterprise bargaining negotiations that have been ongoing since March 2023.
All school services are expected to operate as usual, however the general schedule will operate on a Saturday timetable subject to staff availability.
Approximately 3000 people commute to and from the Brisbane city area from Logan during peak hours each day, and these will be the people most affected.
“It is extremely disappointing. This is the second stoppage of work by the union over the past two months and we were hoping to prevent further disruptions to our customers,” said Kaylee Clark, manager of finance and performance, Clarks Logan City Bus Service.
“We look forward to continuing negotiations and are working hard to finalise a new employment agreement.
“Bus operators in other areas will also be impacted, so it will be a difficult day across South East Queensland for commuters.
“We sincerely apologise to our customers for this inconvenience and ask for their understanding.
“Clarks Logan City Bus Service will provide the best level of service possible tomorrow, but capacity is limited,” said Kaylee Clark.
Thise travelling at peak times are asked to seek alternative arrangements on this day, if possible, as capacity will be limited. This action will also impact school students who use the general urban network (as opposed to scheduled school bus services).
