ARRIVA bus driver strike action has been suspended, Unite The Union has confirmed.

The union is suspending its Industrial action at Arriva Cymru with immediate effect.

Regional Officer, Jo Goodchild said: “Unite is suspending its industrial action at Arriva following an improved pay offer from the employer.

"We will now be balloting our members on the new offer”.

Arriva has confirmed that its bus operations will resume in North Wales and Chester from tomorrow morning (Friday). 

All services are due to run from the first scheduled bus on Friday (November 19), but Arriva warns that early morning services may still experience some disruption as it mobilises its operation overnight.

A spokesperson for Arriva Buses Wales said: "This is good news for our customers in North Wales and Chester and we are pleased that on-going discussions this week have seen both parties committed to finding a way forward so that services could resume tomorrow."
