Hard pressed passengers will have to continue to find other forms of transport as the bus strike is continuing today.
Members of Unite employed by Arriva in Yorkshire started an indefinite walkout from Monday, June 6.
Talks between Arriva Yorkshire and the Unite union to resolve the dispute broke down yesterday (Wednesday).
On Twitter, a Unite spokesperson said they had met with Arriva bosses at the firm’s headquarters in Wakefield.
“Unfortunately, after four hours of discussion the talks have broken down with no deal,” he said.
“We are committed to coming back to the table to confirm and continue negotiating to try and bring this dispute to an end.”
During the strike, Arriva is unable to operate many bus services across Selby, York, Goole, Doncaster and destinations in West Yorkshire.
The Selby bus station has been seen with no buses, and the Arriva office shut.
Increased pay offer
In a statement, Arriva said: “Arriva Yorkshire presented a further increased pay offer to Unite for our colleagues.
“This new offer represents an increase of between 8.2 per cent and 12.7 per cent and raises the top rate to £13.15 per hour as well as increasing back pay.
“We were hopeful today’s talks would lead to a positive outcome and the ending of strike action across Yorkshire.
“However, we’re extremely disappointed at Unites ongoing decision to not ballot their members on this offer.
“Our customers will no doubt share this frustration as strikes will continue to have a negative impact on our communities.
“We repeat our call for the strike to be suspended and for the union to take our offer to our employees so that communities can access vital bus services.”
Further transport chaos is coming. During next week’s rail strikes, Selby railway station is due to be closed.
