8 November 2017

Arriva bus strike still solid

Arriva bus drivers and engineers in Runcorn were out in force on Monday 6 November on the Unite-led picket line - their fourth one-day strike.

Supporters of Halton Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition made their weekly solidarity visit and found the pickets in an upbeat mood.

The strike is still 100% solid and the pickets are determined to see it through. 3% across the board and equal pay at all depots is a fair request from an employer that made a profit of 368 million in 2014-15.

Public support is still high, as borne out by the encouragement of many passers-by and from vehicles beeping in solidarity.

Workers will also be out again on 8 November, coinciding with an RMT transport union strike on Merseyrail and Northern Rail against the imposition of driver-only operated trains.
