So they're advising people if they ask about strike action, but not putting a general post out or any update on their website? 'Live Bus Service Updates & Disruptions' is still blank. 

   

You'd think they'd want to give customers as much notice as possible, so that they can make alternative arrangements, etc. 

Why do these companies find it so difficult to communicate effectively with customers?!

Having seen the post earlier, I asked the driver on the way home if he knew what was happening and he said he didn't really understand what was happening. If the drivers don't know, I'm worried ?

It'd usually indicate there's been no deal (even in principle) agreed yet. I think realistically, and to avoid any industrial action, they'd need to have a deal out for members by noon tomorrow and workplace ballot Friday/Saturday.

They're cutting it fine, that's for sure.

Strike is suspended. New offer 6.1% to go to ballot. £15.01 allegedly top hourly rate of the offer.

Why worried? From what my mate was telling me the number of cancelations on the 44/45 recently its hard to tell they weren't on strike already.

Do what ive done and just use your car - doesn't strike, no knackars at the back play carp music, swearing, etc takes you to and from your door.... might cost a little more but wont let your down!

Not even if the ex-crocodile is there?

MrsC has let me down AND plays crap music. Often swears too. Whether in the front or back.

If my car lets me down I tend to look for an upgrade/newer model.

Hope she's not the 'Baby Reindeer' type?

The local Facebook groups are crying out for action and I'm sure our local Councillors will be telling them they're forcing Arriva to make improvements soon enough!

I parked the car at a friend's today and thought I'd use their GNE service to get to work instead. That didn't work so well either ?

I don't think anyone knows what the answer is, no doubt some will shout that franchising will be the magical fix to everything but it won't be as there's simply not the driver's. Having Stagecoach at Blyth offering the exact same wages and terms (which is this deal appears to be is) isn't exactly going to magically find Driver's from fresh air.
