The Translink bus strike is back on after GMB members turned down a revised pay offer today [9 May 2022] 

Drivers, cleaners and shunters across the company will walk out for seven days from 17 to 23 May 2022, causing the entire bus network to grind to a halt. 

Unions submitted a pay claim of 6 per cent to help the bus drivers, cleaners and shunters cope with rampant inflation of 9 per cent. 

Peter Macklin, GMB Regional Organiser, said: 

“Translink bus workers have today once again shown their anger and frustration with the company. 

"They were proud to carry out their duty during the pandemic - despite potentially putting themselves and their families lives at risk. 

“Now they need some help to tackle the crushing cost of living crisis they face – but bosses aren’t listening. 

“The dispute, which affects bus drivers, cleaners and shunters will close the entire bus network within Northern Ireland. It will be a complete shutdown.”
