BUS drivers for Stagecoach in Wales will still be going on strike from Tuesday, October 19 - despite industrial action in England being suspended.

Stagecoach has been hit with multiple cases of planned industrial action across the UK as drivers ask for an increase in pay per hour.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union employed by Stagecoach in the South West were due to strike today, Monday. But, after a last-minute offer, the strike has been suspended.

An RMT spokesman said: "Strike action on Stagecoach South West tomorrow has been suspended to allow members to have their say on a revised offer received from the company in last-ditch talks today."

Mike Watson, managing director of Stagecoach South West, said: "We have had constructive discussions with RMT today and as a result the strike action planned for Monday has been called off.

"We are pleased to have put together positive pay packages for our people that are supported by the union.

"Throughout our discussions, our priority has been to protect jobs, ensure our people who keep our communities connected are properly rewarded, and secure the long-term future of bus networks in the South West."

However, no such offer has been made to drivers in Wales, many of whom are represented by the union Unite, so the strikes from members of Cwmbran, Brynmawr and Blackwood depots will go ahead as planned.

Unite have confirmed that the strike on Tuesday will go ahead, but there will be further talks with Acas moderation on Thursday.

The drivers from Cwmbran, Brynmawr and Blackwood depots are asking for £10.50 an hour, but Stagecoach have offered £10.10 an hour with decreases to sick pay and removal of paid breaks.
