Bus drivers began a 48-hour strike at First Bradford on Monday of this week. 

The Unite union members walked out over the imposition of rosters and attacks on terms and conditions.

The strike was solid. Over 50 workers were on the first picket line. Workers say the company has run down the Bradford depot over the last few years and routes have been farmed out to Halifax and Leeds in an attempt to reduce wages.
