Unite issues warning to NatEx concerning Stagecoach bid
Unite has warned National Express that its bid to takeover Stagecoach comes at a time of industrial unrest amongst the target firm’s staff.
Members of the trade union are currently involved in around 20 separate disputes with Stagecoach across the country over pay and other related issues. These disputes may result in industrial action across Stagecoach’s entire network during the autumn and winter.
The union has said that it will oppose any asset stripping and wage cuts it claims accompany such takeovers. It criticised Stagecoach for not giving pay rises last year despite it making profits.
