Bus drivers in South Yorkshire held a mass meeting last Sunday to discuss the next steps in their pay dispute with their employer Stagecoach.

The drivers, members of the Unite union, voted overwhelmingly to continue their strikes.

They will walk out on 4, 6, 8 and 10 February, and plan similar strikes each month thereafter.

Barnsley trades council is due to meet on Wednesday of this week. It will discuss holding a march and rally in support of the bus workers on Saturday 4 February, the day of the first strike.

Bus drivers have been lifted by the messages of support and donations that have been sent in.

Stagecoach is refusing to budge on paying back pay owed from beginning of June.
