Workers will now vote on revised deal, unions say

Translink bus workers will begin voting on a new pay deal from today.

Drivers, cleaners and shunters across the country had been due to walk out in a mass strike that would 'bring Northern Ireland to a standstill'.

Industrial action was suspended after bosses made a revised pay offer.

The ballot closes on Monday 9 May at 12 noon with the result expected later that day.

Peter Macklin, GMB Regional Organiser, said:

“Translink workers will now begin voting on the revised pay offer. If they accept it, the industrial action would be cancelled completely.

"However if they turn it down, GMB will meet with members immediately after to plan when the strike - which would bring Northern Ireland to a standstill - will take place."
