Bus driver strike suspended

Drivers and engineers in Edinburgh, southeastern Scotland, have suspended their indefinite bus strike, which was due to start on Friday 2nd August.

The workers from Lothian Buses had been planning to walk out after rejecting a last-minute deal in a long-running dispute with management.

The bus firm is to put a new proposal to staff in a fresh ballot on Friday 9th August. The new deal will address concerns over bullying.

Organisers had planned the strike to coincide with the first day of the Edinburgh Festival.
