Plymouth votes for bus strike

Issue No. 2260

Over 100 Plymouth First bus drivers have voted for industrial action over management scrapping the staff bus.

Workers in the RMT union voted for action that may include a strike and an overtime ban.

The staff bus drops workers at its Chelson Meadow depot at 6.02am, Monday to Saturday.

Bosses claim the bus is under-used and uneconomical, but the workers’ RMT union say it is the “axing of essential staff transport”.

The service was set up before the firm was privatised.
