The Swedish bus strike went into its seventh day today and two parties have failed to reach an agreement. Although representatives for the Kommunal union and the Bus and Coaches Employers Association have met on several occasions during the past couple of days, both sides underline that the talks are not formal negotiations.

Hundreds of thousands of commuters in the Stockholm area as well as Södertälje, Umeå, Norrköping, Strängnäs, Halmstad and Västerås/Hallstahammar have been affected by the strike.

If no deal is struck by the end of the week, Kommunal has said it will expand the strike on Saturday.

The bus drivers are striking to achieve changes to terms concering salaries, working hours and job security.
