Second Sheffield Supertram strike of the week to go ahead after no further talks take place
Sheffield Supertram staff will walk out on strike for the second time this week after no further talks were held over what they labelled an ‘insulting’ pay offer.
Around 200 drivers and conductors will stage a 24-hour strike on Thursday, leading to a ‘very limited number of trams’ operating across the city.
Replacement bus services will run between 7am and 7pm and Stagecoach Supertram asked commuters not to travel during peak hours, if possible.
Phil Bown, regional officer for Unite the Union, said the action came after workers rejected a three-year pay offer, which he claimed equated to around 2.3 per cent.
He said no further talks had taken place since Monday’s strike and apologised to passengers who may be disrupted. Second Sheffield Supertram strike of the week to go ahead after no further talks take place
