Industrial action further dates in South Yorkshire

30 Nov 2021

Phil Medlicott, Managing Director for Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We can confirm that we have been notified of a further 7 days of strike action by Unite union for Saturday 11 December until Friday 17 December affecting services in Barnsley, Rotherham, Dearne Valley and West Yorkshire and Sunday 12 December until Saturday 18 December affecting services in Sheffield.

 

“We know that our employees deserve a good pay rise and have offered employees an increase to the hourly pay rate of 6% with a further 3% in the next 6 months, a total offer of 9% on the current pay rate within 6 months. We feel that this is more than fair and that Unite union is now being unreasonable by not taking this offer back to members to vote upon. Strike action is in no-body's interests.

 

“We remain open to continuing discussions with the union and would urge them to call off this unnecessary action which will cause untold inconvenience to local communities and will hit the pockets of our employees and their families.”
