About 650 bus workers in Teesside, County Durham and parts of North Yorkshire will be voting this week on a revised pay offer tomorrow and Thursday.

It comes after hundreds of Arriva bus drivers staged strike action in a dispute over pay.

Unite regional officer, Ray Sanderson said: “The ballot result will be announced on Friday morning.

“We won’t be revealing the details of the revised offer until our members have a chance to consider and vote on the deal.”

Unite the union, said that the 10 days of strike action by the bus drivers scheduled from 00:01 on 27 January until 23:59 on 5 February have not been suspended, as that depends on the outcome of the ballot.
