Arriva astonished by Unite leadership’s disingenuous strike claim
Reacting to claims from Unite’s leadership that Arriva won’t talk, Gavin Peace, Area operations director for Arriva North East and Yorkshire, said:
“We’re astonished by this disingenuous claim. There have been several conversations with Unite’s leadership this week and at no point has a request for talks been made.
As has been explained to Unite, we are ready to talk at any time and want to meet today to go through the details of our unprecedented, generous offer.
It is disappointing that Unite leadership feel that Wednesday 15 June is the most appropriate time to meet next.
Unite should act urgently and immediately call off this strike action which is causing so much harm to communities across Yorkshire, including to students sitting exams.
It is not fair to the customers we serve to face an unjustified second week of strike action. Many of our customers will also have their own cost of living concerns and we have an essential service to provide.”
