MORE Brisbane Bus Strikes Happening This Wednesday

Doesn't look like the fight between Brisbane's union bus drivers and City Council is going to end anytime soon. 

The Rail, Tram and Bus Union has announced another round of strike action, with hundreds of drivers to walk off the job on Wednesday between 10am and 2pm.

Both sides are failing to come to a compromise after constant talks to reach a better pay deal and more security for drivers behind the wheel.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said he's put a 2.5 per cent pay increase on the table, but they're still not satisfied.

"I'm not going to roll over on this. We've got a good offer on the table," he said.

But the Australian Workers Union's Steve Baker claims the council is not bargaining in good faith. 

"Our members are just seeking a fair go," he said. 

Last Friday's strike action affected more than 100,000 afternoon commuters including thousands of school kids.
