Bus drivers given notice

Have your say

THE island’s 100 bus drivers have been served their notice by management.

It’s the latest development in a dispute in which the government department that runs the island’s nationalised bus service wants to redraw the drivers’ terms and conditions.

The Department of Community, Culture and Leisure sent letters to the drivers yesterday.

Among a number of changed the DCCL wants to make is that drivers should lose their paid lunch breaks.

The department says it has made contingency plans but cannot reveal what they are now because a Tynwald question will be asked about the issue on Tuesday.

Howard Quayle (Middle) has put down the question for the DCCL Minister, Graham Cregeen MHK.
