Go North East to strike

Don't know how much more the company can give if they're already making a loss.
If they were making bumper profits, then I could sympathise with their plight.

If they're getting about 27k a year (according to the back of their buses) then a 9.11% rise is over 2 grand so about an extra £100 odd a month.
Add this to an increased overtime rate then it seems a decent offer on the face of it.

But I'm sure there's more to it than just the money, the article mentions travel time and break changes.
Understand why they are doing it and I support them, but the bairn won't be able to get to school and back.

Not that she's in school as it's a RAAC school so it's online teaching at the moment, but if they do go back, it'll affect her.
