Commuter chaos in the capital regions was averted Thursday morning as bus workers in Gyeonggi Province canceled a planned strike.

Unionized workers were expected to walk off the job amid a breadown in talks with management over their demands for better working conditions.

Despite marathon negotiations that were held overnight between the two sides, no headway was made.

Representatives from Gyeonggi's public bus union said they decided to scrap the strike action out of concern for public transit users.

They said they would continue to advocate for improved working conditions, including a wage increase.

Bus workers in Gyeonggi say they are paid about 500,000 won a month less than their counterparts in other metropolitan cities adopting the semi-public bus management system.

Under the scheme, private bus companies are in charge of bus operations, while municipal governments manage route, schedule and fare decisions.
