Phil Medlicott, Managing Director for Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We’re extremely sorry that the action being taken by Unite means that we are unable to run any bus services from Saturday 27 November until Friday 3 December in Barnsley, Rotherham, Dearne Valley and West Yorkshire and from Sunday 28 November until Saturday 4 December for services in Sheffield.
“We know that our employees deserve a good pay rise and we have left no stone unturned in our attempts to reach a settlement with Unite by offering employees an increase to the hourly pay rate of 4.5%.
“Despite the positive and flexible approach we have taken in talks with the union, it’s very disappointing that this has progressed to strike action which 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.”
