Strikers hit city buses.

FEARS were growing last night that bus services in Cork may be hit by pickets again after a sudden stoppage yesterday.

Some 20,000 commuters were left stranded in the city when striking train drivers picketed the city bus depot.

Four ILDA members put the unofficial picket on the Bus Eireann depot at Capwell from 5.30am to 9am.

More than 60 bus drivers - all members of SIPTU and the NBRU - refused to cross the picket, leading to massive bus disruption.

The dispute between ILDA and Iarnrod Eireann over the new rosters for drivers is now eight weeks old, and is showing signs of crumbling.

The first train to Mayo in seven weeks arrived in Westport yesterday after several striking drivers returned to work.
