BUS DRIVERS in Cumbria have voted for strikes over pay. The workers, employed by Stagecoach, will strike for a day next Wednesday. A TGWU union rep said, "We have drivers driving 25 people on a bus on £5.40 an hour. Drivers want a decent wage. We don't want to inconvenience people too much. I am sure people will understand that this isn't a frivolous dispute."
The action will affect services across Cumbria as drivers are based at Barrow, Carlisle, Kendal and West Cumbria.
