Stagecoach confirms pay deal for bus workers in Manchester

20 Oct 2021

Stagecoach has today (19 October) confirmed that agreement has been reached on a pay deal for bus workers in Manchester. Local trade union representatives have worked constructively with Stagecoach Manchester on a pay offer that has now been agreed by employees. 

Lee Wasnidge, Managing Director for Stagecoach Manchester, said: “We’re very proud of our team, who do a fantastic job in delivering vital transport connections for local people.


“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with our local trade union representatives that represents one of the most competitive pay deals for transport workers in Manchester, and at the same time will help to secure the long-term sustainability of the local bus network. 


“We remain focused on delivering the best service possible to our customers at a time when there are challenges facing bus networks across the country as a result of the pandemic and other factors outside our control.”  

The agreed offer means that all strike action is called off by Unite.
