71 workers at LibertyBus (run by CT Plus) will strike for five days this month – in a bid to get a sacked colleague reinstated. The strikes will be from 22 to 24 August and 27 to 30 August.
Nick Corbel, Unite regional officer, said the 66 drivers and five other staff felt very strongly about the driver's dismissal. They had previously voted overwhelmingly, in two separate ballots, for strike action over a decision by LibertyBus to sack two drivers and the imposition of excessive shift patterns.
Mr Corbel said the case of the second driver had been settled and talks about the shift patterns were continuing with the guidance of the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service.
