Win! Yorkshire bus strike off as sacked reps reinstated

Strike ballots of 3,500 Unite members working for First Group across Yorkshire have been called off after two reps were reinstated. 

Unite regional coordinating officer Steve Clark said “We are pleased to confirm that the two Unite senior reps at First West Yorkshire & North Yorkshire have now been reinstated, following a successful appeals’ procedure.

“Whilst the details of the case remain confidential, the outcome decision has been accepted by both reps and the union.
