A bus drivers’ strike for the 2nd of May has been called off. The trade unions JyTy and JHL have been negotiating a new company collective agreement with Helsinki bus company Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy to replace the old agreement that expires on 30 April. According to the unions the employers organisation PTY was refusing to meet market conform standards and a strike was announced. However, due to a new agreement bus services will operate normally. The agreement covers the period from 1 May 2012 to 31 March 2014.
