“Today’s announcement of an agreed upon Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between government, unions, and employers is a hugely positive step in getting the buses moving on time while ensuring drivers are getting the breaks they are entitled to.

“The government and Minister Twyford has done an outstanding job at bringing the parties together to resolve a complex issue.”
“There is still work which needs to be done – but now everyone has some certainty while a more permanent arrangement can be found which meets the need of bus users, drivers and management,” Wagstaff said.
