Dear Colleagues

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2020/21 – STAGECOACH YORKSHIRE (CHESTERFIELD)

Following on from the magnificent ballot result you gave to your union; this has enabled your negotiators to push the company back to talks and the following improved offer has been tabled:

  • A £400 payment to all full-time employees for 2020. This will be paid pro rata to part time employees and those who have been employed for part of the year.
  • A 1.8% increase across all rates, effective 1st May 2021 and a further 2.7% increase from date of acceptance.
  • This takes the top Driver rate from £10.90 to £11.10 and £11.40 from date of acceptance.
  • No proposed changes to existing terms and conditions.
  • Normal pay negotiations will resume in May 2022.

Your National Executive Committee (NEC) has carefully considered the offer and it has instructed that an e-referendum must be held so that you can have your say on the offer. The NEC is also recommending that you vote ‘YES’ to accept the offer.

Make no mistake, without your willingness to fight the company for a better deal via an industrial action ballot, this offer would not have been forth coming and I would like to congratulate you on your principled stand.

YOU MUST HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS TO TAKE PART

The on-line referendum will close on Thursday 21st October 2021 at 10:00 hours
