NZ Bus lock-out averted

Infratil-owned NZ Bus management was planning to lock out its drivers tomorrow from 4am in an ongoing wage round dispute. But then came a late agreement today:
Both sides lifted their notices of industrial action after a mediation hearing in Auckland this afternoon during which the bus company made an amended pay offer to staff.
I had expected to walk the 5km to work from the ferry terminal tomorrow morning, but hey, it's going to be a glorious day again and hopefully without the fog which made the Superflyte take an hour to get into town this morning.
