“As a result, the public is encouraged to make alternative arrangements wherever possible. The public will be updated tomorrow once a full assessment ‎of service interruption has been determined.

    Great Unions. Stick it to those who rely on you to get to work.

    What about school, will teachers be there to teach? Because they weren’t on Friday. Well not enough.

      Many schools had more teacher’s than students.

    OBA – You’re doing the right thing. Keep Bermuda moving forward. Sometimes you just have to act to help people, even if they don’t understand why.

      NO the OBA isn’t. I’ve lived here my whole life, and I am very upset with what’s going on in Bermuda. The OBA does not represent me.

      • Cmkbda says:

        Well, the People’s campaign, IRAG, and the BIU don’t represent ME. And given the gathering last night, I’d say it’s clear the OBA represent most people in Bermuda at the moment.

    • young verse stupidity says:

      How is this keeping Bermuda moving forward ? Canada,UK along with other places are getting tighter immigration laws as ours are weaning. Other islands stick together for their people and island only Bermudians will go against each other to allow other cultures to take over our home. At the rate of people that are here we’ll be washesd out of our own country. Its bad enough I come back from school and can’t get a job.

    Funny….I have never seen a foreign bus driver.

      If this goes through , soon enough you’ll have one who barely speaks English .

    Furlough days has been brought back by the union. The unions saving the public purse while a portion of their members are the same people they are protesting against.

    Any expat who is pays union dues should send a message to the unions by withdrawing it and sending it charity instead. Talk to your HR departments tomorrow and tell them you want to change your union dues to charity.

    • Verly says:

      Great idea. And a couple of extra dollars a month from every Bermudian union member should make up for the shortfall. I personally wouldn’t mind paying $5 extra a month to make up the difference.

    I wonder what Larry Ellison makes of all this?

  7. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    Whatever it takes to bring this Island to its Knees,To Prayer to Almighty G-D.the Creator of the heavens and the Earth,to equality between all human beings ,regardless of colour.race,or creed.Power to the People.The struggle will continue.Peace.

  8. lifetime says:

    Give them a couple more days until their trash starts stinking and rats and cats start appearing. Sort it out Dunkley! Stand firm Bermudians.

  9. Black treacle says:

    Hi everyone, I am a mixed race expat here in Bermuda, and I am very interested in what’s happening with Pathways. I empathise with elements on both sides of the issue.

    What I don’t get is why people chose to be so hateful. This clearly is an emotional issue, but is it worth trying to out-hate each other?

  10. John says:

    Been watching from here in the States, and I have to ask: isn’t anyone else stunned that a Public Service that *all* of Bermuda relies on is being used to make a political statement that represents the opinion of only some? How is that justified?
    That is not responsible protest – that’s holding your countrymen hostage.

  11. San George says:

    Democracy is intended to control tyranny and the economically powerful. Without economic power there is no end to this.
