Transport around Cardiff is set to be affected this Wednesday (30 November 2011) as it is confirmed that all Cardiff Bus services in the area will be withdrawn as a result of nationwide industrial action.
Cardiff Bus has been advised by the two Trade Unions representing its employees, UNITE and UNISON, that, following a ballot of its members, their members intend to take part in strike action on the 30 November in relation to proposed changes to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
The strike action means that insufficient employees will be attending work to allow Cardiff Bus to safely run a bus service. As a result, the company has confirmed that all of its services are cancelled on 30 November.
Managing Director of Cardiff Bus, David Brown, says: “It is with regret that we confirm that bus services on Wednesday will be withdrawn as a result of strike action. We had hoped to have sufficient staff numbers to be able to run a limited service but, unfortunately, this is not possible. We will, however, be operating a full service again from Thursday 1 December.
