First Aberdeen revised pay offer deal accepted

Union members at First Aberdeen have voted in favour of a revised pay offer, ending the threat of festive strike action.

Staff, including drivers and cleaners, voted in favour of strike action earlier this month.

The action was due to start on Saturday, but had been suspended after "productive" talks earlier in the week.

The Unite union then put a new two-year offer to its members, and the result was announced after 16:00 on Friday.

Duncan Cameron, director and general manager of First Aberdeen, said: "I'm delighted that our customers will be spared the inconvenience of industrial action."
