Stagecoach bus drivers in latest pay win
Stagecoach bus drivers in Aldershot and Guildford secure inflation beating pay increase
Bus drivers employed by Stagecoach working from depots in Aldershot and Guildford have agreed substantial pay increases following extensive negotiations.
The drivers at the Aldershot bus depot will receive a 13 per cent pay increase while those at the Guildford depot will receive 12.57 per cent. The deal covers a total of 170 members of Unite.
Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said, “Unite’s total focus on boosting jobs, pay and conditions has delivered for our members. This deal could not have been achieved without the efforts of our representatives at Stagecoach and the support of Unite members.”
Unite regional officer Phil Silkstone added, “Unite’s reps at both depots have done an excellent job in securing an above inflation increase at a time when workers are facing unprecedented pressure due to the cost of living crisis.”
