Dear Colleagues

Rates of Pay and Conditions 2020/2021 - Stagecoach Bus

The union’s negotiating team has attended pay talks with the company in respect of Chesterfield and East Midlands Bus Garages. At the conclusion of these talks the following ‘full and final’ offer has been tabled:-

No pay increase for 2020
No proposed changes to terms and conditions
Either a £400 payment to all employees (employed at the date of acceptance and pro-rata for any part time employees) or a 1% pay rise applied from the date of acceptance.

Normal pay negotiations will then resume in 2022. The Regional Organiser has been advised by the company that this pay offer will be replicated nationally across all Stagecoach Bus Garages. Having consulted with our Representatives, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed me to inform the company of our rejection of the offer. Additionally, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed me to convene an urgent national zoom meeting with all our Stagecoach Bus Representatives and Lead Officers present to discuss the way forward with this matter. This meeting has been scheduled for 1st June 2021.

I will write again with a further update following the conclusion of this meeting.

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
