Our members at @FirstManchester Oldham depot commenced strike action this morning (10 January) in a dispute over pay and conditions.

These workers have made it clear that they will no longer accept low pay for a highly skilled and responsible role.

The 300 plus drivers who are members of Unite, the UK’s leading union, recorded a 99 per cent vote in favour of strike action. Several rounds of negotiations have been held but broke down as First Manchester failed to make an offer which met workers’ expectations.
