Stagecoach Merseyside bus strikes off
Stagecoach Merseyside bus strike suspended following revised pay offer
A strike of bus workers employed by Stagecoach on Merseyside scheduled for this Thursday (June 30) has been suspended after workers received a revised pay offer.
The dispute involves 370 members of Unite, the UK’s leading union, employed as bus drivers and engineers at the company’s Gilmoss depot.
Unite is now in the process balloting its members on the offer.
Unite regional officer Dave Roberts said, “Following lengthy negotiations Stagecoach came forward with a revised offer, which Unite’s members are now being balloted on.”
If the offer is rejected by members the second strike scheduled for Monday, July 4 will go ahead as planned.
