Dundee drivers may strike again

Bus drivers could take part in further strike action in Dundee as a dispute over an increased working week continues. This comes as National Express Dundee revealed it is investigating what happened during the industrial action last week.
The drivers walked out on Thursday over a change to their conditions, and the suspension of their union representatives. Although the drivers returned to work on Friday, the issue of an increase from a 40 to a 43-hour working week has still not been decided with management. It is understood this could lead to the Unite branch balloting its members for further strike action in the future. The pair who were suspended over the initial wildcat strike have yet to be reinstated to their jobs.
