Stagecoach Hull strikes suspended
New pay offer agreed after extensive negotiations
Workers are being balloted on a new pay deal at Stagecoach’s Hull operation.
Strikes by members of trade union Unite at the operator have now been suspended from to allow workers to be balloted on a new pay deal.
Following extensive negotiations, a new pay offer was agreed between Stagecoach’s management and Unite.
Unite regional coordinating officer, Harriet Eisner, said: “Following a significantly improved offer from Stagecoach, Unite has suspended strikes in order to ballot its members on the new offer.”
If workers reject the deal, then the all-out continuous strike action will resume on Monday 14 November.
Approximately 250 bus workers based in Hull are involved in the dispute.
Matt Cranwell, Managing Director for Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “Following movement on both sides, we have agreed a new pay deal with Unite that they will be putting forward to their members with a recommendation to accept.
“On this basis, Unite have agreed to suspend strike action for next week. We are therefore pleased to be able to resume services for our passengers in Hull.”
