Bus Industrial Action postponed following further talks

Translink is pleased to have reached an agreement with officials from Unite the Union and GMB Bus Driver Trade Unions to avert this week’s industrial action.

A Translink spokesperson said,

“Following a meeting with the Union officials today, we have structured a revised offer that acknowledges their concerns over increasing inflation and the cost of living while also supporting wider business needs. 

“We welcome this constructive engagement with our unions. 

“Preventing this industrial action has been of the utmost priority for the company. We are pleased to have found a way forward that will enable us to build back public transport for a more sustainable and better future for all. 

All Translink bus services including school buses will operate as normal from Tuesday 17th May and for the rest of the week.
