Arriva in Yorkshire

Planned industrial action by Arriva Yorkshire drivers

10 November 16

Update on Arriva bus strike

We wholeheartedly apologise for any inconvenience caused to you, our customers, by this strike. We have been working tirelessly over the last year with drivers’ representatives from Unite the Union to bring pay talks to an amicable conclusion. But, despite our best efforts, with multiple offers to increase pay and conditions we received notification to strike.

This isn’t a classic management versus Union struggle to see who comes out on top. In fact, four times now, we have agreed pay deals with the Union negotiating committee which they have recommended for acceptance.  Unfortunately, these Union recommended deals have failed to get voted through by a small margin.

On the 19th October we tabled a further enhanced 5.4% pay rise for all drivers covering January 2016 through to December 2018 and the promise of future talks on driver conditions. We are disappointed that the Union negotiating committee refused to ballot members on this increased offer in favour of a 24-hour stoppage.
