Dear members — welcome! Tear your eyes away from the political bulletins for the first time this week and enjoy this packed Friday edition.
Today’s story concerns bus drivers. 370 Stagecoach drivers walked out at their Gillmoss depot on Monday in a dispute over pay, and they plan to do so again, announcing an all out strike to begin on 20 July earlier today. Jack spoke to three of them and found out that life in the cabin isn’t always as straightforward as it seems.
