DCCL says driver offer is still on table

Mon, 17 Jun 2013

Plans are in place in the event of further bus strikes.

That’s according to the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure which says it's prepared to respond to any further threats of industrial action.

Drivers went on strike for 12 days over TT as part of a long running dispute over changes to their terms and conditions.

However the department says it is hopeful it can find an end to the row and an offer to drivers remains on the table.

Minister Graham Cregeen says he believes staff would be happy to accept the new offer but there isn’t the same willingness from shop stewards and off-Island officers of Unite the Union.
