Sunderland Stagecoach drivers cancel four planned strikes in city
Strikes planned by bus drivers in Sunderland over a pay row have now been cancelled. Members of the GMB union who work for operator Stagecoach in Sunderland were set to stage four 24-hour walkouts, starting from Monday.
But it has been announced today that union members have voted to accept a revised offer placed before them by Stagecoach, ending the plan for industrial action.
The strikes would have taken place over four successive Mondays - with Stagecoach reassuring customers that bus services would run as normal.
