Drivers with the Kavim bus line went on strike Thursday, leaving thousands of passengers scrambling to find alternate transportation. The strike has affected busing in several cities, including the city of Modiin, home to many American citizens in Israel.
Passengers were not informed of the strike until after it had begun.
Busing was also stopped in Petach Tikva, Ramle and Lod.
Drivers are accusing the Kavim company of sabotaging their attempts to unionize. They say drivers who joined the union were punished with unwanted schedule changes.
