Isle of Man: big vote for further strikes

Bus drivers in the Isle of Man have voted overwhelmingly in favour of further strike action, Unite has confirmed. They are involved in a dispute with state-owned Bus Vannin about plans to introduce a £3,000 pay cut.
Unite regional officer Eric Holmes said 73 of the 77 drivers balloted voted in favour of action. He said the next strike must happen before the end of the month. It could coincide with the Isle of Man TT races (practice week starts on 25 May). The drivers have already walked out in December, January and February over the planned cuts.
