According to the GLO at yesterday’s Union Meeting, no-one at Padmore Street is aware of this. I expect that there will be frantic negotiations over the next few days.

Saturdays service is quite frankly appalling - not too sure where they are going to get the drivers from - we will all expect extra wages to cope with the extra work involved!
