There will be no buses running across Ballarat this afternoon (July 13).

CDC drivers are continuing their industrial action and will walk off the job from 2.00pm to 6.00pm, with all 15 routes not running during this time.

Drivers are pushing for a 4 per cent wage increase and have previously rejected a 2.5 per cent rise from CDC, who has since applied for a mediation with the Fair Work Commission.

Meanwhile CDC is warning bus passengers that services could be impacted up to one hour before and after this afternoon's strike.

There is also the chance of more industrial action by drivers from 2.00pm to 6.00pm next Tuesday (July 17) and Friday (July 20).
