Bus drivers strike in Wales for a pay rise

Issue No. 2190

Bus drivers in North Wales have voted by 77 percent for strikes.

The drivers at Arriva Buses Wales voted by 275 to 82 to strike for the same rate of pay as drivers in Liverpool, who get an extra £1 an hour.

So far bosses have only offered a 20p an hour rise.

The action will hit bus depots in Wrexham, Rhyl, Llandudno and Bangor.
