South Yorkshire Stagecoach bus drivers' strike

Stagecoach South Yorkshire bus drivers, members of the Unite trade union, took two more days of strike action on 2 and 3 December in pursuit of their claim for 9/hour pay parity with their Sheffield colleagues.

Management had refused to budge since their first two days of strike action, but pickets at the Rawmarsh depot in Rotherham are determined to win this dispute.

The latest action was taken just two days after the N30 public sector strike. What was noticeable was how many cars and lorries were honking horns in support along the main road.

Glenn, one of the shop stewards, told us that he had been outside Barnsley hospital on N30 to support his daughter who was on strike there - so much for private sector workers not supporting the public sector, it's our own families.

A mass meeting of the drivers on Sunday 4th voted for further action, on 16 and 17 December and then two more days in January if the bosses don't agree to 9/hour in a one-year deal.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
