EXCLUSIVE

Metropolitan bus service providers Dyson’s, Ventura and Kinetic are expected to strike this Friday, 6 May 2022 (Between 12:01am and 11:59pm) in a push for better pay and conditions.

A source toldĀ VicNews this morning that Dyson’s is refusing to pass on a projected 2.19 per cent wage increase set out in government-funded contracts to workers.

“I thought I’d let you (passengers) know so you can make alternative arrangements for getting to [redacted] on Friday.

“We’re sick of seeing other [bus] companies pass on the increase, but not Dyson’s,” the source told VicNews.

The strike is expected to affect metropolitan public transport and school bus services in Melbourne’s eastern, south-eastern and north-eastern suburbs.

It is not expected to affect regional services or Department of Education Specialist School Buses (DEECD) however we are unable to confirm this.

More to come.


Dyson’s, Ventura, Kinetic and Transport Workers Union (Vic) have been contacted for comment.

The Minister for Transport, Ben Carroll did not respond to request for comment.
