Talks in bid to avoid strike by First Aberdeen bus drivers
Union set to ballot members over industrial action
TALKS between bus company First Aberdeen and union leaders are due to take place at conciliation service ACAS next month in a bid to settle a dispute over pay.
The Unite union is set to ballot members later this month on industrial action in Aberdeen after failing to agree a pay deal with bosses.
First Aberdeen reportedly offered drivers a 1.5% pay rise but with strings attached, including a cut in overtime payments.
