The long running Yorkshire bus dispute might soon be at an end.
Strike action by staff at Arriva Yorkshire has crippled services over a number of weeks.
The first hopeful sign came last week, when union Unite agreed to suspend further walkouts ‘as an act of good faith’ as bosses drew up a new pay offer.
Today (Monday), Arriva Yorkshire said: “Arriva and Unite the Union are pleased to have reached an agreement today over a recommended offer being taken to union members in a ballot later this week.”
If the members balloted agree to accept the pay offer, what has been a drawn out and sometimes bitter dispute will finally be over.
This will be a huge relief to passengers in York, Selby and other regions in Yorkshire who have struggled to get to work and school in recent weeks, a situation made worse still when the rail strikes crippled that form of transport.
