Motion text

That this House condemns the continued pressure being applied to bus drivers in Gateshead by the Go Ahead Group to accept a reduction in wages; believes that the constant boasting of success by the company directors, whose own salaries have followed the traditions of privatised public industries, should be matched by proper reward for the main contributors to that success, the workers; and calls upon the directors to continue their emulation of Scrooge to its conclusion by adopting the true spirit of Christmas and withdrawing the pressure from the drivers.
