Strikes Set to Severely Disrupt Arriva Bus Services from Wednesday 20 July 

A strike by Arriva employees is expected to severely disrupt bus services in Cheshire East and the wider North West region from Wednesday.

Arriva bus drivers and support staff will begin strike action from 2am on 20 July. This will affect all Winsford and Macclesfield depot services operating across the borough as well as depots and services across the whole of the North West Region.

Arriva staff are in dispute with the company over pay, raising the prospect of large-scale disruption for public transport passengers in the region.

Employees at Arriva across the North West are set to walk out after voting overwhelmingly for industrial action. The strike action does not have an end date.

It has been reported that Arriva management will be holding further talks with the unions this week in a bid to resolve the dispute.

People are being urged to make alternative travel arrangements.

Bus services provided by other operators are expected to be operating as normal.
