A pre-trial conference for the four bus drivers charged with instigating a strike has been set for Dec 19.

The lawyers representing the bus drivers could not confirm if the four would be claiming trial, adding that they needed more time to take instructions from their clients.

He Jun Ling, 32, Gao Yue Qiang, 32, Liu Xiangying, 33 and Wang Xianjie, 39, have been charged with instigating a strike.

He faces an additional charge of inciting a strike. If found guilty, they face a jail term of up to a year and/or a fine or up to $2,000.
