Isle of Man: drivers reject latest offer

Bus drivers in the Isle of Man have voted against a deal which the Manx government had hoped would rule out plans for more industrial action. Bus Vannin drivers took industrial action in December and January over new measures including a £3,000 pay cut.
In a secret ballot yesterday, 56 of 79 voters rejected the new deal, the terms of which have not been made public. Eric Holmes from the Unite union said a decision on whether or not there will be further strike action will be made at a members meeting.
