Arriva North West industrial action - an update

Unfortunately, the current industrial action at Arriva North West is not resolved.

Here's an updated statement from Arriva.

“We are extremely disappointed that despite further negotiations today with Unite and GMB and a very generous improved offer, the Unions have once again walked away without even agreeing to put our offer to their members.  This means we continue to face ongoing strike action across the North West region, causing continued misery for passengers.

We have worked tirelessly to reach an agreement on a way forward, today making an offer that would have seen our drivers being the  highest paid in the region, with no changes to current employee benefits and a lump sum of backdated pay to April 1st 2022.  

Our customers will share our frustration at the Unions’ unreasonable stance. We are seeking to engage ACAS to help bring a resolution to this situation and we urge Unite and GMB to immediately reconsider their position, call an end to strike action and give their members the opportunity to ballot on our generous pay rise.”
