Arriva – Updated proposed strike

Dear Parents and Carers

This email arrived from Arriva today (22nd November 2017):

Arriva drivers trade union propose strike action across the Merseyside bus network on the following date:

Monday 27th November 2017

In addition there are now advance plans for further dates in December which we will confirm to you in due course.

We are not in a position to provide replacement bus services. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient for parents and children travelling to school and we advise parents to consider travel options and make alternative arrangements.

There are other buses running across the transport network on these dates but please be advised these are likely to be busier as a result of the strike action.  If the situation changes we will of course communicate this to you well in advance, as soon as we receive formal notification.

Parents and Carers are advised to monitor Arriva,  Merseytravel  and train operating company websites and follow Arriva on Twitter @arrivanorthwest for further updates.  Arriva can be contacted on  telephone number 0344 800 44 11
