Jeremy Corbyn has told supporters the Labour Party is planning a “massive campaign day” for the NHS on Saturday 26 November.   Jeremy says: “Under Theresa May’s Government, our NHS is in crisis.   In November, we’ll be coming together as a party to show the Tories that we won’t stand by while they destroy our NHS, and to let people know that Labour will always give the NHS the money it needs.”  JEREMY CORBYN

Arriva Bus Drivers 24-hour strike Monday 14 November

Unite Press Release
West Yorkshire bus drivers to strike over pay and safety
Over 850 Arriva bus drivers operating out of five depots across West Yorkshire will be taking part in a 24-hour strike on Monday 14 November in a dispute over pay and shifts which see them being forced to drive up to five and a half hours without a break, their union Unite announced today (Wednesday 9 November).
It is expected that the strike involving drivers at depots in Castleford, Dewsbury, Heckmondwike, Selby and Wakefield, will severely disrupt services. The stoppage follows the breakdown of protracted talks with Arriva bosses amid mounting anger among drivers who are seeking a 20 pence an hour pay rise and reduction in driving time behind the wheel.
Pickets will be there all day from 5am!
Castleford        WF10 2JJ
Dewsbury                WF12 9AG
Heckmondwike    WF16 0LJ
Selby                   YO8 8BG
Wakefield               WF1 5JX
Drivers want Arriva to reduce the time behind the wheel before a break from five and half hours to five, to more closely align with lorry drivers who legally can only drive for a maximum four and a half hours before taking a break.

unite-the-union
Commenting Unite regional officer Phil Bown said: “Strike action is not a step our members take lightly, but after nearly 12 months of circular talks they have become increasingly angry about being strung along by Arriva bosses.
“Our members take great pride in the service they provide and given Arriva’s large profits believe it’s only right that they get a modest pay rise which reflects their hard work.
“Importantly they want to provide a service to the travelling public which is safe. That is why Unite has been urging the company to cut the time a driver can spend at the wheel before a break from five and half hours to five.
“We would urge Arriva bosses to sit back down with us and negotiate meaningfully to avoid disruption to the travelling public.”
