    Caring Carrie Lam has done nothing to redress the in-balance of drivers rights vs company powers. Drivers still have to work 14 hours days in bad conditions and low pay.

    They will take industrial action on Friday

    The Government has enacted no legislation to protect workers from excessive hours and minimal rest time but 'urged bus captains to remain rational and exercise restraint in exercising their labour rights, and maintain proper bus services'
