newsEWN reports that amid the national bus strike, drivers at the Thari Bus Service in the North West claim they have not been paid for the past month.  

Documents seen by Eyewitness News show that over 300 workers were laid off and later hired under different terms.  But workers claim that the new conditions are not favourable and have appealed to the CCMA to speed up its intervention in the matter.  One worker has called on government to also intervene, saying:  “Leave everything as it is.  If maybe the owner of the company had problems to run this company, as a parastatal company they must take it back to the government, and tell them 'look, I can’t run this company going forward.'”  EWN's call to general manager Paul Rush have gone unanswered.
