First Aberdeen bus industrial action ballot coming to close

A consultative ballot of hundreds of Aberdeen bus drivers and cleaners asking if they would be prepared to take industrial action in a bid to settle a pay and conditions dispute is coming to a close.

About 550 workers at First Aberdeen are involved.

If staff do vote in favour, a postal ballot will follow, unless a deal is struck with First management.

First has said the drivers are among the best paid in the industry.
