First Bus driver strike talks set to continue

Talks to try to avert a strike at Glasgow's main local bus company are to continue on Wednesday.

About 1,200 drivers in the Unite union are due to strike over pay at First Glasgow for seven days from Friday.

Talks took place on Tuesday under the auspices of conciliation service Acas.

First has said its pay offer was well above inflation, while Unite argued that pay in Glasgow was below the levels of other drivers across First Group's other UK operations.

Any strike would be likely to cause serious disruption to local services in the city.
