Metro Tasmania is warning it may use CCTV footage to check if drivers do not collect fares from passengers as a pay dispute continues.
Unions Tasmania is encouraging commuters to refuse to pay fares every Thursday until Metro agrees to drivers' demands for a 3 per cent annual increase over three years.
Metro's chief executive Heather Haselgrove has warned drivers the action is illegal and the company will monitor the situation.
"We will be looking at he the revenue collected by each bus driver and comparing it to what they normally collect and we can always view the CCTV footage," she said.
The bus drivers' union is distancing itself from Unions Tasmania suggestion of a fare boycott tomorrow.
Secretary, Sam Simonetis, says it is a Unions Tasmania campaign and drivers are not involved.
"It's up to the commuters. If they get on and pay that's fantastic, if they get on and they haven't got enough money to travel I'm sure most drivers will ensure they can get from A to B," she said.
"That's our job to transport people A to B. Our job is also to collect fares."
