Bus drivers in Puerto Rico plan one-day strike

Updated Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014 | 7:45 a.m.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Bus drivers in Puerto Rico are planning to launch their second strike just weeks after the first one.

Union president Antonio Diaz said there will be no service Monday in the San Juan metropolitan area because drivers have not been paid for working overtime and for offering service during a recent holiday. Diaz made the announcement late Friday.

Drivers launched a two-day strike in late December over legislation they said threatened their labor union.
