Date set for conciliation on uniform allowance dispute
A date has been set for conciliation on the Bus Division’s long running dispute with STA over uniform allowance.
Drivers continue to be denied the allowance they are owed for their uniforms needs by STA. This issue will now come before the Chief Industrial Magistrates Court on the 23rd of January.
The key point of the dispute is establishing exactly how much the allowance should be and how much the drivers are owed.
A statement outlining the union’s position on this matter has been submitted and we are currently waiting on a statement from STA in response.
Drivers will be kept up to date on this dispute as it progresses.
