‘Aberdeen bus drivers face paying £2,000 for training’
Claim in First Bus pay offer row
IT WAS claimed today that First bus drivers – who have already rejected a pay offer from bosses – could be forced to pay for their own training.
The Unite union is already set to ballot Aberdeen members later this month on industrial action in the pay row, and there is also anger over a new contract.
The contract, which is set to be introduced across the UK, would see new drivers paying towards their training which, over two years, could amount to around £2,000.
