Bus Drivers Turn Down Pay Offer

(BBC) – BUS DRIVERS IN SOUTH ESSEX have rejected a three-year pay deal following talks with First.

Workers at all First depots in Essex had been due to take industrial action last week for 24 hours after they were offered no pay increase by First Group.

But, following a three-year pay offer, Basildon and Hadleigh workers suspended the strike to hold a ballot on whether to accept the deal.

Drivers rejected the deal.

It is not known if they will strike again.
