Strike isn't affecting services - DTL

It's being claimed today's strike by bus workers in the Isle of Man isn't affecting services.

Inspectors and depot supervisors have withdrawn their labour in a dispute over pay and conditions.

However, this morning the Department of Tourism and Leisure, which runs the service, said following discussions it was confident the action wouldn't prevent the buses from operating as normal.

John Moss has been at the bus depot in Douglas (play attached audio file):

The strike is for one day, but the union Prospect is warning it will be followed by further industrial action, unless agreement can be reached between the group of employees and management.
