Bus drivers to strike next Thursday

Thu, 10 Jan 2013

Bus drivers on the Isle of Man are to strike again next week.

There’s no end in sight to the row over their pay, terms and conditions.

Their bosses at the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure want to save £300,000 by making changes to drivers’ current deal.

Workers say they’ll lose some sick pay, holiday pay and paid lunch breaks, which will cost them around £3,000 a year.

Drivers will stage a strike next Thursday (17th) between 1pm and 6pm and the Unite union predicts further action over the coming months if a resolution can’t be found.
