Finland -Vantaa bus drivers on strike over shifts -May 20, 2013

Veolia bus drivers in the town of Vantaa are entering their second week of industrial action. Over 400 bus drivers have joined the walk-out, in which they protest against a new shift system. In the new shift system, drivers could be made to work three weekends out of four, or sixteen days with only a single rest day. Bus services in Vantaa are paralysed as a result of the action.
