For the second time this week Ballarat bus services will be disrupted with drivers to walk off the job.

CDC has confirmed a strike will take place tomorrow (July 13) with drivers to stop work from 2.00pm to 6.00pm as part of ongoing industrial action after negotiations stalled on a new enterprise bargaining agreement. 

Drivers are pushing for a 4 per cent pay rise from the company, after being offered a 2.5 per cent increase.

Commuters are being warned to make alternative travel arrangements with all 15 Ballarat routes to grind to a halt.

No Ballarat services ran on Tuesday (June 10) due to strike action by 600 drivers, with a picket line set up at the CDC's Norman Street depot.

Further four hour work stoppages are also possible from 2.00pm to 6.00pm on Tuesday (July 17) and Friday (July 20) next week.
