Bus drivers threaten action over hours, pay
Tuesday 8th January 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
BUS drivers will work to rule from Monday unless CT Plus backs down over a dispute about working hours and pay.
The rebelling employees, who voted in favour of the industrial action, predict it will result in cuts to services.
The action means that drivers will do the minimum required by their contract and refuse to work any extra hours, including through their lunch break, do overtime or cover any other drivers. They have also threatened full strike action in the coming weeks if the bus operator refuses to compromise.
CT Plus said talks were ongoing and it would be inappropriate to discuss them through the media.
