Auckland Transport says a planned bus strike on Monday has been called off.
NZ Bus held an urgent meeting with bus unions this morning, in a last ditch effort to keep Auckland bus services running as usual.
After the failure of wage negotiations, Auckland bus drivers decided to undertake Monday work stoppages for two months, starting September 24.
But, Auckland Transport says all future strikes have also been cancelled.
Each strike was planned to last from 4am on Monday until 2am on Tuesday, and would have affected around 170 afternoon school trips.
NZ Bus chief operating officer Shane McMahon said its latest offer would have seen drivers the highest paid in Auckland, earning $20 an hour next year.
The company said it would not be increasing its financial offer,
which it believes met the demands of union leadership.
