Cardiff bus workers to join N30 strike

Bus services in Cardiff face major disruption next week as drivers take part in widespread strike action. Cardiff Bus says it has been advised by the two trade unions representing its employees, Unite and Unison, that following a ballot their members intend to take part in the strike action, which is opposed to proposed government changes to the pension scheme.
The company has been historically linked with the scheme since 1986, when it was formed, but says it has no involvement with, or control over it, and stressed it has no involvement with the dispute. Although just 66 employees out of a total of 730 are members of the scheme, all employees were balloted for industrial action.
