Direct Action Gets Satisfaction

On the buses

BBC NEWS | Scotland | Deal reached in city bus strike Bus drivers in Edinburgh may not be the cheeriest group of workers but they know how to run a strike. They were outraged at Lothian Transport bosses (owned by the council) giving themselves 31% pay rises whilst quibbling over a few pence an hour for the drivers. They took on those bosses and, on occasion, their own union, the T&G to get a result. That meant striking during the Festival, when buses are indispensible and taking unofficial wildcat action. First the posties, now the bus drivers, dinnae mess with Embra workers!
