Every effort to be made avoid First Aberdeen Christmas bus strikes

Staff and management in the First Aberdeen pay dispute have said they will do everything they can to avoid Christmas bus strikes.

Workers at the company voted overwhelmingly to reject the latest wage offer from management.

A backdated offer of a 1% pay rise, and changes to driving shifts, was rejected by 244 drivers and cleaners, with just six voting in favour of the deal.

The proposal was tabled following talks with the conciliation service Acas.
