The Lothian Bus drivers have agreed to strike on the first day of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. That is the 15,000 drivers who drive the majority of Edinburgh's fleet. Trains and trams and other bus companies are not affected BUT it will have a huge impact.
My first reaction was anti the drivers. I tend to think that strikes impact on the wrong people.
However after reading the back story, it is a long held grievance about workplace bullying by management who even now think that by offering a sweetener of a small pay rise, everyone can go home happy.
I still think it will be nurses and others trying to get to work, who'll be worst affected by this strike and won't be as sympathetic as the drivers would like but what do others
Managers will presumably be insulated in their cars as they don't use the buses.
