Metroline vote rejects offer

Issue No. 2232

Bus workers at Metroline in London have voted by 87 percent in an indicative ballot to reject a pay offer.

A consultative ballot for industrial action is now set to take place on Friday 17 December.

A Unite rep told Socialist Worker, “We are looking for a strike in January if we don’t get a settlement.”

Meanwhile, in an important step forward, Unite has agreed to hold a consultative ballot at Sovereign Buses’ two west London garages to demand the reinstatment of sacked union convenor Abdul Omer.

The ballot must be called soon—and backed up by the full weight of the union.
