A union representing striking bus drivers in Weymouth and Bridport has withdrawn from arbitration talks designed to resolve an ongoing dispute over pay, bus firm First Dorset has claimed.

Marc Reddy, managing director of First Dorset, said: “This latest u-turn from the union is very disappointing."
He added: "It’s clear that the union had no intention of entering in to a process whereby an independently appointed arbitrator makes a decision on pay, despite publicly stating an appetite to enter arbitration talks."
He said the firm remained "absolutely committed to resolving this dispute as soon as possible and allow our drivers to revert to what they do best – transporting customers in and around Weymouth".
