BUS strikes in Sydney may be averted, with the State Transit Authority (STA) expected to put a firm pay offer to drivers this afternoon.
The Rail Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) and the STA have been negotiating a new three-year Enterprise Bargaining Agreement, but have been deadlocked on pay and conditions.
The union is seeking an 18 per cent pay rise, child care for shift workers and more breaks between driving stretches.
RTBU bus and tram division secretary Raul Baonza was hopeful the impasse would be resolved today.
"I think we're pretty close, but I still think we could do a little better," he said.
"But the talks have been going well."
The STA and union are scheduled to meet at 1pm (AEST).
The union will vote tomorrow on whether to accept the offer or proceed with threatened stoppages.
Successful talks between the union and the STA averted driver strikes planned for last week.
