Auckland bus workers are optimistic their pay talks can be resolved.
Despite coming close to reaching an agreement, NZ Bus drivers haven't reached a pay offer and have started working to rule.
First Union spokesman Karl Anderson says drivers work long, unsocial hours and NZ Bus is a profitable company that's failing to respect the work of drivers.
Mr Anderson says the owners of NZ Bus posted a six percent profit last week, so can afford a decent pay rise for staff.
