Bus bosses suspend strikers

Issue No. 2511

Unite union bus workers in Leeds looked set to reject another pay insult from First bosses.

They also look set to demand action from their union over the suspension of 15 workers including their union rep.

Unite member Mark said the workers had been suspended for comments made on social media.

Unite members were meeting to discuss their response to the suspensions and the latest pay offer as Socialist Worker went to press.

More talks were expected later this week. But members should demand their officials set new dates for sustained strikes and hit the bosses in the pocket to win more.
