In a statement this evening Arriva has said that “following a reconciliation meeting that took place this morning between Arriva and the GWU and subsequent discussions between Arriva, the GWU and Transport Malta it has been unilaterally agreed that the implementation of the summer transport schedules will be postponed until Sunday 30th June 2013.”
The new summer schedule was due to have come into force this Sunday and has been delayed due to a dispute with the GWU over the drivers’ roster.
“This postponement will allow further work to be done on development of the drivers working patterns, which will in turn provide an enhanced service to the customer in the delivery of the revised service patterns across Malta this summer.
“It is the intention of all parties to continue working together in partnership to deliver high levels of service to the people of Malta,” Arriva concluded.
