Translink employees to strike in NI Members of unite employed by state-owned Northern Ireland transport operator Translink voted for strike action on November 30.

Bus and train services across Northern Ireland are likely to face severe disruption during the single day strike over pensions. Other areas of the public sector have already voted to take industrial action.

Translink is still awaiting formal notification from Unite about the strike action. “We are not yet in a position to say what impact there will be on bus and rail services,” the operator said.

Stagecoach Yorkshire faces similar strike action, although the firm is drafting in over 100 drivers to cover and expects the action to have little effect on its services.
