First Bus strike ballot to be counted

The Aberdeen bus strike ballots will be counted today to see wether drivers, mechanics and cleaners will accept a new pay offer.

Staff at First Bus in Aberdeen have been involved in ongoing industrial action, which has seen several strikes as well as a work-to-rule over the summer.

Further industrial action planned for this week was suspended after the company offered a revised pay deal, which workers have been voting on over the weekend, according to the BBC.

Unions have recommended that staff accept the revised offer.

John Stewart, leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: “I am clearly pleased that First and T&G Unite have reached a place where an offer could be made that the unions can recommend.”
