OVER 1,300 bus drivers in Edinburgh and the Lothians were poised to start an indefinite strike over pay this week. But a last minute offer halted the action.
The Transport and General Workers Union is recommending workers accept the offer. They also recommended the previous, inferior, offer which workers threw out.
Details of the new deal were not available as Socialist Worker went to press. Drivers had called for a 12 percent increase without strings.
