Bus driver negotiations fail again

Mon, 22 Oct 2012

Bus drivers have still to come to an agreement over changes to their pay and terms and conditions.

It follows another day of negotiations on Friday between the drivers, the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure and Unite the Union.

This came after three unsuccessful ballots – two of which Unite recommended were accepted – and letters being sent to drivers with the option of resigning a new contract.

Department chief executive Nick Black says the department’s position remains the same – it will accept alternative proposals that achieve the same level of savings, believed to be £300,000.
