Arriva Bus Strikes

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I wish to make you aware of Planned industrial action by Arriva Yorkshire drivers, which is due to take place on Monday 14th November 2016. This will affect the bus services of Arriva transport including the following : 147,476,159,175,168,587,588,590.

School will remain open on Monday 14th November and we encourage families to make other appropriate arrangements for their children to attend school as normal, so that students are able to continue their studies.

If your son/daughter is unable to attend school on Monday 14th November, you must for safeguarding purposes contact the school attendance office to notify school of the absence and reason for absence. The telephone number for the attendance office is 01977 691000 ext 127

Arriva have made a short statement on their website stating :

07 November 16

We are disappointed to announce planned industrial action by drivers. The 24 hour strike is due to begin at 03:00 on Monday 14th November. During this time limited Arriva bus services will operate within Yorkshire. All Yorkshire Tiger services will be unaffected.

Currently we are in the process of working out which services we will be able to run. All details will be available no later than Thursday 10th November, and we will continue to update this webpage with the most relevant service information as soon as we have it.

We want to wholeheartedly apologise to our customers who will be affected by this industrial action.
